Shayna Gladstone's Team Pic

Shayna Gladstone

Shayna, a Founder of NuMundo has been a digital nomad for the past 4 years. She has lived at many different ecovillages and permaculture farms that have deepened her knowledge of living in community and living with the land. Most of her explorations outside the US have been in Latin America where she picked up Spanish, dove into indigenous culture and studied social and permaculture projects. During her journeys, she ignited some of her own projects such as the Ignite Experience in Chile. Throughout her travels she has found a perfect work/life balance allowing her to run her own consulting business to keep her financially abundant while trading her these skills for accommodations. Shayna is most proud of her resilient relationship with Bryan (another pathfinder) that has blossomed even throughout their time working on projects in other countries together and apart. Shayna is enthusiastic about supporting others in trusting in their own dreams to build a lifestyle that gives back to the earth and ourselves.
