Future Workampers

I don't mind working. I have had many different jobs since I was fifteen years old. I started my job with the City when I was twenty-five and that is why I was able to retire with twenty years of service at age forty-five. I've worn many hats as far as jobs are concerned over the years. I have been a nanny, cashier, concession manager, file clerk, mail sorter, answering service operator, school bus driver, water meter reader, dispatcher, receptionist, permit clerk, B&B owner and operator, planning coordinator and caterer.  I am currently manage the office for a friend who owns a plumbing company.

Dawn too has a lot of work experiences since college (degree in recreational management). She has been a cashier, teaching assistant, water meter reader, recreation manager, pool manager, B&B owner and operator, caterer and served on city council. 

We look forward to working in different surroundings and doing different things while meeting new people. Our plans for full timing will also include some workamping and we look forward to the opportunities.  


  1. All of those experiences will come in handy! Personally, I can't imagine not working, although I would certainly like it to be less hours. I think as long as you're open to learning and willing to put forth the effort, you should have no problems being successful at workamping. Look forward to seeing you out here soon!

  2. With that wide array of experiences neither of you will have a problem in the workamping arena. Your resumes will read like a dream. There are so many places to volunteer/workamp. Mike and I have volunteered at a NWR and hosting. After this, I want to let it rest a bit before going back to another volunteer position.

  3. You've pretty much had a job that starts with every letter of the alphabet :) There's some great info about workcamping online that will be useful when you hit the road!


  4. Sounds like you'll be awesome applicants. :) I'm anxious to get to my next assignment.
