About Me


I want to hug everyone.


I am a flight attendant who loves to travel! I recently became a property manager for an apartment complex so I'm finally home a little more and able to host on a more regular basis!
I enjoy meeting new people, learning new languages, trying new foods and experiencing every part of other cultures :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Flying definitely gave me an opportunity to see a lot of the world while I was working, but only from a tourist standpoint. Looking to see the local side of things!


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

I spent one week in Germany with families that didn't speak any english. The best learning experience, and most fun I've ever had. It pushed me to my limits and was the most rewarding experience!
