Hello travelers near and far!! I am currently visiting my parents in Connecticut USA, but I am looking to drive across the country to get back to where I live in Ventura, California (north of LA and south of Santa Barbra) sometime in the near future. If anyone is interested in a road trip I am hoping to go down the east coast as far as Florida, I want to visit the major cities in Tennessee, New Orleans, Texas, Colorado, Utah, Washington and Oregon. I am up to any suggestions as I don't have set plans or dates. Must have great taste in music and ability to hold a conversation - although I am interested in cities I would also like to camp out in the national parks that we pass through too! Xo E

Next Destination(s):
Currently: New Haven, CT

Helper Description:
Eliza MacLeod
Ventura, CA

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Eliza MacLeod and I am a senior at Pennsylvania State University on track to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Psychological Life Science through the online World Campus. Three and a half years at this institution has molded my brain to think abstractly with an in-depth understanding of human nature, which could become a valuable asset to my work in interacting as your HelpX volunteer!

I'm a nomad. I moved to San Diego, California in the beginning of 2017, after solo backpacking through Europe. I left San Diego the beginning of June to work on the northeast USA, Nantucket Island, Massachusetts and Lake Placid, New York.

In August I made my way around South East Asia to embark on a spiritual journey of self discovery, empowerment and cultural integration.

After finding myself this past year I have realized that I am extremely fascinated with a variety of things one being sustainability. I am looking to start an online masters program at Penn State University in Renewable Energy and Sustainability Systems. While it is my goal to work on self-sustaining properties to gain in field experience while learning in the online classroom. I can offer access to world class information, as together we work on building a brighter future for our planet.

Some of my experience with work exchange in the past includes six months in Europe working in hostels, book stores and as a social media and marketing representative in a multitude of destinations. I additionally worked as an au pair in Milan, Italy for over 4 months.

In the past I have also focused on working with influential nonprofit organizations. This is simply because of my fascination associated with helping the global community.

My background also includes serving as a customer service and sales associate in multiple retail environments. In addition to summers interning at an international marketing firm. I can most definitely help you build on your internet presence! I currently work for an international marketing firm that focuses on healthy food alternatives, while working in childcare as a nanny (I have for over 7 years).

Previous to this position I was employed as the Assistant to the Dean of Facilities at American International College. I was able to further develop my understanding of marketing, as my responsibilities included assisting in the rebranding of the institution.

I am an extremely driven and insightful being. While staying and working with you, I will also be finishing my degree (internet is a must), but I will also be working on my personal branding through Instagram, twitter and blogging. Although I am still in the early stages of all, I am confident that this next trip will gain a multitude of followers that will help your growing business and help educate the outside world on your respective culture!

I am confident that I can offer you the creativity and professional dedication that will allow for me to become a reliable leader in your community no matter how much time I spend. I cannot wait to help in more ways than one, while I ultimately gain far more than I can ever give. I am looking for an experience of a lifetime on a local level.

Thank you for your time and I truly look forward to learning more about you!
