  • Profile description
  • I am a middle-aged single parent of three children with more than 20 years' experience in event management, travel planning, and customer service. Now that my youngest child has left home for college, I am free to fulfill a life-long dream of traveling and living abroad!

    I realize I am probably older than the typical volunteer worker, but I am in good physical health and adapt easily to new situations and environments. While I have worked in bookstores and universities for many years, I also have more "hands-on" volunteer experience clearing wilderness trails in Alaska and excavating native american sites in North Carolina as well as dinosaur fossils in Wyoming. In February I will be traveling to Nepal to help rebuild a school that was destroyed by earthquake.

    I am a hard worker and a quick learner, and I am looking for volunteer work in interesting places with interesting people. I am a passionate worker who is particularly drawn to innovative business ideas or projects that have a positive social impact.

    I can work well with just about anyone. I have designed and managed programs for children as well as senior citizens. I love animals and have always had a dog or a cat in my household. My children often invited friends to live with us when they were in need of a safe home, so I have learned to live in a constantly changing household!
