Hi! My name is Jen.
A little bit about myself: I’m Korean, born in Brazil, North American citizen. I’ve been fortunate enough to live in a number of diverse places such as Sao Paulo, Chicago, Thailand, Los Angeles, New Mexico, Mexico-- to name a few. I did a good portion of my growing up in Hawaii and Hawaii will forever hold a very special place in my heart.
I have a deep curiosity and appetite for life and exploration. I have been traveling long term for nearly two years now. I love being in nature. I love animals. I'm an avid appreciator of music, art, film, photography, stand up comedy, tattoos, living in harmony with Mother Earth, loving kindness practices, meditation, cooking, retreating in silence, and connecting with genuine and compassionate souls from all parts of the globe.
I've been the caretaker of both pets and homes for many friends (of course I'd be happy to provide you with references). I have a multi-faceted set of skills in regard to work- ranging from hospitality to food and beverage, to working with special needs children. Throughout the last two years of traveling I have experienced working on an organic farm in the desert, pulled invasive plants from trails using large heavy tools, learned how to make 50 perfect wooden daggers out of twigs using an electric saw for a Tibetan Buddhist ceremony, looked after many rental properties (intensive housekeeping--I love to organize and clean!), was a member in the accomodation team for a yoga and meditation school, cooked for retreat guests at different meditation centers and communities (guests ranging in number from 10-85).
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to speaking with you!
