My name is Maddie, I am a 23 year old nature enthusiast with a can-do attitude and a passion for adventure.
I studied biology at university and although I am yet to work in the field, I have a huge passion for nature and conservation. The natural world fascinates me and all animal sightings (from large mammals to small insects and spiders) have me grinning from ear to ear.
I grew up in rural New Zealand and love the wilderness and outdoors. Give me a mountain to climb or a jungle to trek through and I'll be there!
I first used workaway during my travels in Canada in 2016. I found it to be such a rewarding experience and I am eager to get back into the workaway life.

Helping with Tourists
I am a hard worker, a fast and eager learner, and I'm willing to give anything a go – if you have skills to teach me I will gladly learn!
I am physically fit, happy to work outdoors (as well as indoors) and have no problem with getting my hands dirty.
I have experience working with and caring for farm animals (chickens, sheep, goats, horses etc.). I have also done a bit of gardening, yard work, and some very basic building/carpentry in my time.
I have worked in retail so I have experience in customer service and money handling.
Finally, I have a BSc in biology if that counts for anything.
