About Me


I want to hug everyone.


I am a flight attendant who loves to travel.
I enjoy meeting new people, learning new languages, trying new foods and experiencing every part of other cultures.

Antigua, Guatemala- Tops took my friends and I around town for the day. Welcomed us into his home, and shared great stories over many glasses of rum!

Tokyo, Japan- David hosted me for my very first CS overnight. He was such a gracious host, and really showed me the ropes! So thankful for his insight and tips!


I work a lot, but I love what I do so I can't complain. I'm a busy body who's always on the go. I always have my nose in a book, and coffee in my hand. I love remodeling, and cleaning (weird, I know).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Spent one week in Germany with families that spoke ZERO english. The best learning experience, and most fun I've ever had.

Teach, Learn, Share

There is so much more to life than money and status. I wish more people realized this.
