Why Unsettled Down?

Well, between 1/3 to half the year I’m pretty nomadic. You might find me in the States, SE Asia, South America or ??? I’ve even been to Antarctica. Here’s me trying to Instagram some penguins to prove it:

I’ve also lived in Brighton, England and in Prague, Czech Republic. All these moves and working to fit myself into various countries’ visa regulations means I’ve collected a lot of varied experience over the years:

I drove the trailer for a kayaking class and got paid to sit in the woods and read while the students kayaked to the end point of the river.

I was an International Project Manager for a project auditing a multi-national company in Dubai. I found out I got the job 24 hours before. 

I managed the RAs and Counselors at an academic summer program for gifted children at Bryn Mawr and Princeton University. I once had to talk a student down who was pretending to be a squirrel from running into a class door full speed.

I moved to Prague at 22 after asking Google what I should do after graduation. Google said to get my TEFL certification teach English there. I listened.

I was accidentally in a Febreze commercial and earned 1600€ for it. They blindfolded me, put me in a van, and asked me how things smelled a lot. For some reason I didn’t really question this at the time.

I ran the Registrar’s Office for a small Liberal Arts university, where I oversaw the logistics of the academic programs and coordinated 250+ students, 40+ faculty and 20 staff. Mostly I had to console students who were afraid their careers were ruined because they didn’t get into Black & White Photography.

I taught IT students to develop their cultural awareness in preparation for doing internships abroad. Mostly they tried to make awkward sex jokes at me.

I helped coordinate field trips and get students settled in for a summer study abroad program in Berlin for Harvard University. One time a parent took her student home the first day because there was too much graffiti in Berlin.

So how do all these random ass jobs relate to me and my business, you say? Well, for one, I am pretty adaptable and learn things very quickly. My job history also means I have developed a decent amount of perspective to see how things fit together and the big picture.

You can read my references from my past life here. You know, just for some proof that I’m responsible and Germany trusted me enough to give me a permanent visa to live here.

I’ve run my own successful blog, Vegan Nom Noms, since 2008 and run the online community Queer Women* Digital Nomads for LGBTQ* women and non-binary individuals who work remotely. Since early 2018 I help badass entrepreneurs and small businesses with their websites, sales funnels, eCommerce sores and have served as their techie VA.
