About Me


To satisfy my career side by working as an international teacher in Colombia, getting to travel, practice Spanish, and figure out this crazy thing called life.


I'm the middle child in a family of 8 kids...and I survived. That in itself should tell you a little about me. :) I'm independent. I teach first grade, so I have too much energy and lots of funny stories. I always work too hard, but I know how to play hard as well. I'm a planner and detail-oriented. I'm a nerd and like to learn. I'm straightforward...I tell it like it is and I am who I am.


Everything happens for a reason. Try everything once. Hard work always pays off in the end. Perfectionism is a blessing and a curse. You can't be happy with someone else until you're happy with yourself. There's never a bad moment to simply DANCE!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Right now, I doubt my current roommate would let me host anyone, so I'm hoping to use Couchsurfing when I travel to new places on my own. I haven't used the account in several years and it's fascinating to come back, reread what you had written before, and see how life has changed. :)


Dancing (literally any style...picking up more Latin styles since living in Colombia), chatting, practicing my Spanish, trying new beers and wines, making lists, cooking and eating, reading, dogs, grammar, hiking, making lists, dark chocolate with peppermint, and seeing beautiful places.
