About Me


Sometimes I feel like a square peg in a round hole and I like that. I'm constantly finding ways to expand myself. I used to be a professional figure skater and spent three years traveling the world making little kids smile. I grew up on a small farm in Manitoba, Canada but have been running around the globe for the past 11 years trying to find my niche. A couple of years ago I realized that I was right where I needed to be, and I had always been there. Here. I find it difficult to conform to the expectations of others, but have a genuine desire to help people and make the world a better place, in this I like to call myself a compassionate visionary. I felt at 'home' for the first time in a long time when I moved to Portland 2 years ago. I recently cut my hair and am taking a stab at a life with bangs. So far so good.


We are all here, just doing the best that we can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


A Green Goblin


Currently I am acquiring all of the tools I need to be the world's most amazing (and probably smallest) chiropractor. Grad school is tough but in all of the right places.I just started my Clinical Internship which means that I am finally treating patients. I haven't felt this passionate about something since my competitve figure skating years. Chiropractic has been one of my happiest and healthiest happenstances.
In between all of these moments, I tend to jump on a plane whenever I can to find out more about this world and about myself. I just got back from a three month school hiatus in Central America. What a shockingly stunning experience.
