The most amazing moment in my life so far
Watching my project in Cangumbang be built in to a reality with the children who have become my own by my side through it all.
My passion for volunteering and working with children started at a young age, but throughout the past 5 years my time in the Philippines has opened my eyes to a completely new world with unique, endless needs and perspectives.

I have finally found a way to make helping people in to a life long career (in multiple ways), and I don't plan on changing career paths anytime soon!

Currently, I divide my time between rebuilding the Cangumbang Project after the devasting Typhoon Haiyan which struck out island in November 2013 and working full time for GoAbroad.com as a Content Manager, spreading meaningful travel opportunities around the world!
