About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I am Nelle from the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I love spending time outdoors, hiking, festivals and camping, but I also love dancing and living in the city. I am easy-going, honest, respectful, loving, caring, energetic, and adventurous. Good beer, good conversations, and good people make me happy! I have been a foreign exchange student in Spain, an English/yoga teacher/bilingual operator in Argentina, an English/Piano teacher in Panama and a server in Eugene, Oregon and Leavenworth, Washington. I've volunteered in Bolivia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Spain, France and Ireland. I've got a working holiday visa for New Zealand and will be there in 2015!

PHILOSOPHY

Eveything in the end will be okay, if it's not okay it's not the end.
