  • Description

    Originally from the UK, I've lived and worked abroad for most of my adult life. Currently living in Switzerland and very keen to improve my Swiss German and be more immersed in the Swiss culture (I work in an international, English speaking setting). I would also love to spend more time in Iceland (I have visited twice) and get to the Faroe Islands and Greenland!

    I have a medical science degree and have some work experience in literature based research and science communication. I love to write and am still fascinated by human anatomy and medical research. However, I don't enjoy being at a computer all day so I have followed a career path that gives me more variety in the work day and lets me get outdoors as much as possible. Currently I am a manager at a busy residential youth centre with a focus on outdoor education and leadership opportunities for girls and young women.

    I have a lot of experience working with children of all ages (from 4 months+), including those with physical disabilities and additional needs. I have also taught English and have a TEFL qualification. I have worked in schools, youth centres, and residential camps including on programme and curriculum design and am familiar with Forest School and Montessori methodolgies.

    In my free time I love to be outdoors (hiking, cycling, klettersteig, kayaking, snowshoeing, etc.), play board games, and mess around on my drum kit. I have had some great experiences with WorkAway so far and look forward to many more!
