I'll be in Asheville,NC until after Christmas. I'm open to traveling companions after that. Preferably those that don't mind work exchange of course!
Currently in New Orleans through February, I'll be looking for hosts
in New Mexico, Arizona, or San Diego come late February.
A bit of background about me:
Once upon a time I was a property manager for a low income/mixed income senior citizen complex. I put my professional career on hiatus to travel. And have been traveling as much as possible since March 2016. I have traveled and lived in most of Northern California, Oregon, and Western Washington. I spent two months in Thailand and Cambodia at the beginning of 2017.
I'm a native english speaker and have a limited American Sign Language proficiency.
I am at my core a social introvert. I can be a bit of a social butterfly and a networker and I work at my best when I have some time to wind down, recharge, and read a book.
I am an avid writer. Though I'm working on a blog (see link above) to try to create some passive income my passion is fiction.
I'll probably try to make you laugh. Depending on the person that might be a good thing or a bad thing ( :
I'm an excellent multi-tasker and am great at managing myself. If I know my responsibilities you'll never have to tell me twice.
A bit more about my skill set:
Office Work/Management - As I said above I was once a property manager. With that comes a variety of skills such as bookkeeping, reception, office management, etc. Before then I was most notably a sales and customer service resolutions expert. Basically I was the person who resolved escalations in addition to my job on a sales floor of one of the world's largest furniture companies.
Assembly/Cabinetry Design - Okay, so it was IKEA. I was a kitchen cabinet planner there for seven years and I have lots experience assembling IKEA furniture.
Hotel/Hostel/Hospitality -I have lived and worked at Mt. Rainier and have been a guest at many hostels and guesthouses. I understand the wants and needs that guests require to have a good experience.
Event Coordination - I've hosted several meet ups in my city ranging from karaoke nights to themed bar crawls. Community is very important to me.
Around the home - I love cooking. I have experience with babysitting, petsitting, and general housesitting. My petsitting has been mostly cats or dogs but I hope to learn more about livestock care and equestrian care this year.
Farmwork - I have volunteered on many community farms as well as other organizations. I have mostly worked with the bedding and planting.
Landscaping - I have moved countless piles of soil, hacked many a blackberry bush, pruned apple trees, and weeded enough for a lifetime.
Orchardwork - I worked on an orchard for the summer/fall season. During the summer I picked peaches. During the Fall I picked apples.
I am a licensed driver and this time around I will be traveling by car.
