  • Description

    Hi! I am Mary Elizabeth, or most commonly, MEW (my initials).
    I grew up on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, and find a thrill in exploring new places and meeting new people. The concept of 'home' to me is wherever I am. It's always fascinating to me how people from such different cultures can be so different; yet, so alike.
    I love being outside and getting my hands dirty and am very 'comfortable with being uncomfortable'. Whether that be digging out a tent in the winter, lugging heavy building equipment in the sweltering heat, or trudging through mud while alone in the woods for days on end, I find a joy in the simplicity of having only what you need while immersed in nature
    I dabble in a variety of things and can enjoy and afternoon doing anything from seeing an art show, to swimming, to cooking up a feast, to hiking, to live music, to climbing, to just chilling out with a good book. Life is short, yet the world is wide!

    What else.....I like a good sense of humor!
    I've done seasonal work for many years and enjoy living with new people in a shared space. I've also lived with a handful of host families anywhere from a few weeks to six months while traveling. I always feel honored to be welcomed into someone's home and respect how they live.
