  • Profile description
  • Hello future hosts! In my other life, I was a working small business owner of medical-legal transcription for more than 35 years, but gave it all up and began traveling the world and volunteering in May 2017, now having been in 26 countries in this time (36 total). This life has suited me well. I have many reviews on two other volunteer sites. Just ask!

    I am healthy, self motivated, up for most anything, confident and adventurous. Raised my family as a single mom. My strengths are organization, managing a household with all the daily upkeep for a busy family or single person who needs a hand, care of animals and children. In addition, I have experience with painting/minor repairs in a home, having done upgrading/remodeling in four houses. I like to cook and will be happy to assist or make meals, go to the market with you or alone. I am not a gourmet chef, but make healthy and flavorful food.

    Hobbies are water sports, dancing different styles, hot yoga, staying fit, and reading. Love and appreciate the arts. My passion is alternative medicine/natural healing. Ideally would like to meet others in the alternative health/dance/new age fields but not required. :-) Diet is plant based/vegan.

    Looking forward to meeting you and immersing into your lives.
