About Me


Missions change with time. I'm beggining a new chapter in life, so the mission is still being negotiated.


I live with my husband Gregg Mervine and our little Miguel. Gregg and I have both been CS members in different cities (me in Rio de Janeiro, Gregg in Philadelphia, USA) before we moved together to Parai­ba state, Northeast Brazil.

We are now in Campina Grande, where I work as a Literature Professor in the state university. Gregg is a percussionist and composer (jazz, balkan, klezmer, punk rock, Brazilian rhythms, etc).

Miguel is a toddler, he was born in May 2013. He's being raised bilingual, in English and Portuguese.


Whatever works.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We hosted CS people in Philadelphia, Rio and Campina Grande, surfed couches in Buenos Aires, hung out with members in Brasil, Argentina and the US.


Arts in general, particularly literature & cinema. Nature. Solutions to improve the quality of community life.

Music, Movies, and Books

Too hard to list, our life is surrounded by that.

We are currently listening to a lot of electronic music, for that's Gregg's latest adventure.

My work demands a lot of readings. Now I'm mostly dedicated to 20th and 21st Century Hispanic American literature.
