  • Profile description
  • Hello. I am a young, healthy 52 year old. At home, I am in sales and have been for a very long time. I also have successfully run my own businesses for the past 20 years. I also own two properties on airbnb, one of which I manage myself.
    I have traveled throughout all of the US, much of Mexico, Canada, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, French Polynesia and Europe (Western and Central). I am currently at home in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, but I am looking forward to getting away on another workaway/travel experience.

    The most interesting thing I have done in my life was having spent 8 months with my 18 year old son, Carter, travelling throughout Latin America. We visited 12 countries from Mexico all the way south to the Patagonia regions of Chile and Argentina. We enrolled in Spanish language immersion courses together in Mexico and Ecuador, we became certified scuba divers together in Honduras, we taught English together in the Galapagos Islands, we hiked a volcano together in Guatemala and boarded down another in Nicaragua. We hiked the Inca trail for 4 days to Machu Picchu, we hiked Mt. Fitzroy, saw Torres del Paine, saw Iguazu Falls and lived together in an apartment in Buenos Aires for two great weeks. It was an amazing time and an even more amazing bonding experience. Today my son is 22 and studying at university. In him, I have instilled the desire to travel and see the world and meet new people from all walks of life. SUCCESS!!!! :)
    I hope to hear from you. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

    I am not a technical person as I have been in sales virtually my entire life. I am pretty good with a bucket of paint and a paintbrush. I am certified to teach English as a second language. I am focused, responsible, trustworthy, well organized, detail oriented and grateful for opportunities and to be alive.

    I am a quick learner and diligent with regards to work. I am fully versed in customer service and the need to multi-task as they relate to business. The secret to my business success, I believe, has been my willingness to exceed customer expectations. No job is beneath me so if I need to clean a toilet then I have no problem with that.

    My TEFL certification is through the Vancouver Language Institute in Guadalajara, Mexico. My teaching experience is limited, but I have taught both at the Language Institute while becoming certified and as a volunteer at a school in the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. I enjoy teaching English very much - especially to students who have a strong desire to learn the language.
