About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To spread a new concept of the traveling American.

ABOUT ME

I've traveled and moved around since I was very young. In 2006 I traveled for almost eight months in South America and Africa and last year I spent five months in Europe and Morocco.

I like to volunteer at orphanages for a couple of weeks on each trip and so far have done this in Tanzania and Albania. It appears that there is no regulation of orphanages, something like a branch of the United Nations, to oversee orphanages. Children in many countries suffer.

I'm a woman in her 50's who wants to see as much of the world as I can in the next few years. I've taught children (2nd and 4th grade) and cared for many babies (have two sons and a granddaughter).

PHILOSOPHY

Life is an advenure.
