About Me

I love culture. I love art. It is a wonderful World out there if we truly see one another. I have traveled a little and want to travel more. I would hope that every place I visit I can contribute to the environment.
I love to cook and to share. My home is modest but I am very happy to share a time and a space with a traveler.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I would love to travel. This is something new for me.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I stepped out of my career with the Houston Chronicle in 1999 to volunteer as a new mother in my church, in my community and in our animal shelters. I now work as a freelance artist. I was crazy to do it but I love crazy. People have said, "I will do some volunteering when I retire." I love that but some people never get to retire. Is that a waste? I wanted to be on the front lines of community out reach. I have volunteered and received awards from President Bush and President Obama on my efforts. I really volunteered. I think everyone should give. People have told me the poor don't come to the schools to volunteer. Well if we are helping the poor the poor can also help the poor. Let us break down misconceptions of what it is to volunteer in America. Here is a modest American volunteering to serve.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn more languages. Teach English. Share my skills as a cook.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A friendly and safe place to rest with some good food.
