  • Description

    Hello! We're Jennie and Daniel. We have been traveling the U.S in our van for a couple months but unfortunately our van broke down so we’re looking to settle down somewhere for a few months. We are very self motivated and hard working, and enjoy any sort of work you can give us. We spent a week with a couple that ran an AirBnB on a horse ranch, and painted their cabin for them. It was one of our favorite experiences so far traveling and pushed us to join Workaway.
    Jennie studied Urban Studies, Spanish, and Latin American Studies in college and hopes to become a social worker in the future. Next year, she will be teaching English in Colombia. She's worked in child care for ten years in babysitting, daycare, mentoring, and teaching dance as well as Latin American topics. As a summer intern she developed curriculum for a female empowerment mentoring program. She enjoys learning new cultures and languages, traveling, dancing, painting, cooking and meeting new people.
    Daniel graduated with a degree in Public Service, focusing on Non-profit Management. His many part-time jobs in college included running an AirBnB, working at a community garden in an underserved area as well as helping at a sustainable art and gardening summer camp for children, and worked with reptiles for a year and a half. He spent a semester interning at an arts and commmunity inclusivity organization helping with securing donations, managing volunteers, and event coordination. He loves playing games, any and all animals, traveling, and trying to learn new languages and musical instruments.
    In addition to what we already know and do, we would love to learn about your interests and if able, take part in what you do. For example, both already like yoga and meditation and other mindfulness practices, but would benefit from learning from somebody with more experience.
