About the Author

Nola Lee Kelsey is the author of 700 Places to Volunteer Before You Die: A Traveler's Guide among other titles. Kelsey is also the creator/content editor of The Voluntary Traveler: Adventures from the Road Best Traveled and The V-List. In addition, she hosted The Voluntary Traveler podcast and runs every aspect of The Voluntary Traveler network. As she has meandered the globe, her humor and travel articles have appeared in hundreds of diverse publications from Reptiles Magazine to The Bangkok Post. Over the past two and a half decades Kelsey has worked as a dog caregiver, a reptile keeper, marine park trainer, penguin handler, behavioral data collector, and a wildlife rehabilitator. She is also a self-confessed serial volunteer for global animal rescue organizations. As a result, she has been bitten by just about everything - twice! The final culprit was the writing bug. According to Kelsey, this distant relative of the travel bug actually pumps ink into your veins while simultaneously sucking your wallet dry.
