Hello! My name is Lisa and I am 26 years old. I recently decided to change lifestyle and will leave Switzerland to find a new home, my real self. I'll be off all my duties at the end of September and am actively looking for a boat to cross the atlantic. Preference for crew where there are other women/families. My sailing experience so far: 2 sailing classes on the lake on a surprise and upcoming lessons to get on speed with some skills that uni did not teach me. My professional experience: I hold a Bachelor in Management and Master in Marketing. I also worked as a gym and handball trainer for children/teenagers. I worked as a Marketing/Communication for my sport club, a start-up, a coworking space and now in a global biopharma company. Other skills: I did work as a promoter and hostess for various events with different types of customers (big companies as well as private events). I am a PADI advanced open water diver with +30 dives. I studied in Australia and backpacked there, as well as in south east asia for more than 5 months. What tasks can I help with on board? I can cook, help with boat maintenance and cleaning and am willing to learn how to sail, as much as other languages and from other crew friends. The destination is not such an importance to me, my priority would be to find a boat owner I can get along with to have a nice and fun crossing!
