  • Mi situación


  • Descripción


    Born and educated in London, England, my parents owned a boarding house so I am used to living amongst people of other cultures and helping them during their stay.

    My profession is in holistic therapies over a period of 30 years and I also helped to manage a healing and retreat centre in Mallorca, Spain where my work also included care of the finca and estate, housekeeping, permaculture, gardening, caring for chickens, orchards etc. I also gave talks, workshops and courses in Aromatherapy in Spanish as well as in English in Mallorca and in the UK.

    Prior to that I worked in film, animation, office work, as partner and chef in a restaurant and was a member in a workers' co-operative wholefood shop and restaurant in Manchester in the late 70’s where my interest in healthy eating and lifestyle began. I love cooking and baking and enjoy housekeeping. I also volunteer at a local gallery stewarding and helping with tourists' enquiries. Presently I am concentrating on artwork.

    I enjoy teaching conversational English to children and adults of any age, and make sure they get lots of practice whilst involving them in fun activities. I am told that I communicate well.

    I’ve been a volunteer at the Tate Gallery in St Ives as part of the Family Learning Team and enjoy involvement in art with children. Helping at times with costume making and on-site catering for a local theatre group has been great fun and I enjoy working in teams as well as on my own.

    I’ve also volunteered at a community gardening project helping to grow and sell organic vegetables, promote healthy eating and studied Organic Horticulture and Permaculture. I am interested in learning about community life and have enjoyed short stays at co-housing projects.

    I like walking, folk dancing, body boarding, swimming, sewing, arts and crafts, Yoga and related activities and enjoy peaceful places close to nature when possible. I have two daughters and a grandson and now that I have more flexibility I enjoy the opportunity to travel and work whilst meeting new people, learning about their way of life and sharing skills.
