  • Profile description
  • Hello! : )

    I am relocating to Austin; I work independently "from home" (in a mobile way) with WIFI and can schedule work & chores around my revenue creation. I will be commuting to Austin sometimes for in-person Reiki appointments and to play guitar & sing my original songs. I like the idea of being in service to a local family or individual as I become familiar with the Austin area, in order to transition into my own living space in Austin within a set period of time, which may be approximately 3 months or sooner (probably not to exceed 6 months). I'd welcome getting to know & assist a nice local family or individual while I become acclimated to Austin : ) My homestate is Michigan, but I've lived and worked all over the country & lived in Dallas from 2015-2018; I went home to Michigan for a year before hoping to permanently relocate to the Austin area at this time.
