Companion Ad:
As I travel I am limited to positions that I can handle on my own, I would love to partner up with someone who can handle the maintenance part of placements allowing me to open up my prospects.

Helper Description:
Just a little about myself, I am happiest when I am helping others and therefore loved my position as a sales coordinator, providing guests with award winning service, at an award winning name brand hotel. However I also wanted to travel. Low pay and high debts hindered my ability to do that. I came up with a plan to continue doing the work I love which also allows me to travel. I sold my house, paid off my debts, quit my job and started a business being an Interim Innkeeper. In between assignments, with my business, I will be traveling for pleasure. I was excited when I was introduced to HelpX, a way to travel and make myself useful while doing it.

I personally love to cook and in addition to line cooking at several restaurants, I have cooked meals for large groups of people for my church.
