About Me


To make things as smooth as possible. I'm a people pleaser and I am happiest when people around me are happy. I would say that I'm pretty good at managing myself in this crazy world. No bad habits, except for food :)


Gosh, how many profiles have I had to write about myself in the past couple of decades? A lot, me thinks. I'm an American by birth who grew up in the Pacific Northwest region. Love the diverse landscape and I will probably die here. That doesn't mean that I will live here forever. I love to travel and hope to be able to work around the world once I get my Masters degree and put in a few years of clinical practice. My friends would say I'm very friendly and approachable. They would also say that I'm a good listener who enjoys good conversation. In my job, I need to be the one doing the least amount of talking; so I would say that makes me a very good listener. I enjoy doing new things and seeing new people, although most of the time I am a homebody. Hoping to see more of the world soon!


Go with the flow. Don't look back and make the best of it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a follower and a leader! I go with my instincts and have more loyalty towards people than organizations. Love to host like-minded people and show them around town. Haven't been able to do much lately due to graduate school but that will pick up again soon. Also love to get to know people through this. It has really been awesome so far!


I have done it a few times so far and it was great! I enjoyed the sheer friendliness of my hosts.


I enjoy reading sci-fi books, eating sushi, skiing, traveling around, and just hanging out with good people. Please let me take you to sushi!

Music, Movies, and Books

Anything sci-fi for movies, music can be whatever I hear on the radio, and I like sci-fi books with a bit of mystery mixed in here and there.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My drive through the Eastern Washington vastness and down the Oregon and Northern California coasts left me pretty awestruck. Looking forward to driving through the entire USA someday.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy meeting all types of people. I enjoy a huge spectrum of people without any bigotry.
