Location: Costa Rica
Welcome to the Lifeworks Costa Ricablogs! Below is a little bit about the staff that will be leading this summer. Enjoy!
Devin Wilson – Devin is a passionate photographer, environmentalist, surfer, and friend. He has traveled the world studying, surfing, working, and doing community service. He always leaves each location with an understanding of a new culture and many new friends. From experiences at remote surf spots deep in Mexico, to entering disaster zones in the wake of Katrina, to exploring the beauty and power of Australia, to organizing charity races, to nights spent alone under the stars and the canopy of the jungle; Devin feels very lucky to have shared his experiences with the people he has met.
James Purcell – After graduating with degrees in International Business and Spanish, James spent the next few years volunteering and exploring his way through South and Central America, the U.S. and Spain. These experiences sparked passions in international education, experiential learning, food security and sustainable agriculture. He now combines these passions with his interest in video production, working with non-profit organizations to share their stories. He’s a flexible vegetarian, aspiring polyglot, environmentalist and avid adventurer who loves music, travel, hammocks and raw honey.
Skylar Stetten – Skylar found her passion for travel and photography while doing photographic research in developing nations for a global non-profit. Skylar is inspired by the people she meets whose perspective gives them both balance and courage in the face of adversity. Skylar was raised in Wilmington, NC and graduated from the College of Charleston. As a marathon runner and teacher of yoga and meditation, Skylar is an advocate for global health and wellness. She believes life is more meaningful when it’s in the service of others and is thrilled to be working with a purpose-driven organization that combines service with education and adventure.
