Skye Wikjord Co-Founder & Team Leader.
Skye is an international traveler making a positive social impact everywhere she goes. Encouraging her children, her community and the Go Across Team to focus on their natural strengths to make a positive impact on the world around them. She knows, by reaching out together as a community we inspire each other to "shoot for the moon", and become leaders for positive change in our own lives and the lives of the people around us. Skye's background is in the non-profit & healthcare sector. She has created events that raised over 130K and a priceless amount of awareness for social programs in Canada, and Panamá.
Skye moved her family to Panamá in 2012 and lived with her two young daughters and her husband in a small beach community until 2017. She used her LPN ( licensed practical nurse ), and R.M.T education to open up a Healing & Learning Centre in Panamá. She was the president of a legal non-profit in Panamá for 2.5 years assisting underprivileged college-aged girls with the housing and support they desperately needed to continue their education.
She also volunteered as an English teacher in Panamanian government-run public school. The experiences she gained from working alongside local teachers to promote greater literacy, support opportunities for higher education, and build vocational skills via her learning center ( Massage Therapy, communication skills, customer service, marketing, and goal planning ) among students was a joyful and fulfilling experience. Skye is overjoyed to offer these life-changing programs to international visitors to Panamá. She sees these programs growing with their strong team of innovative, enthusiastic, and ethical team members.
