About Me


Currently I am in Medellin until December 2016 to teach English, but my main goal in life - i want to see the world


i am an easy going down to earth gal and very casual - which may explain the lack of capitalization. i tend to have fun in everything i do, and you may even be able to catch me singing and grooving to songs anywhere at anytime. i get along with almost anyone. just be cool, that's all i ask. i think you should try everything at least once cause you might actually like it.


live. laugh. love.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i've gone to several meetups in both boston and places i've traveled. and i have also surfed some couches. it is an amazing experience to be welcomed into someone's home. i enjoy learning about cultures around the world and remain friends with my hosts.


i've surfed in argentina, singapore, indonesia, malaysia, and the united states. i've also been introduced to the local couchsurfing events by my hosts in these places. i attend the meetups in boston when i am there and time allows. it is such a great concept.


traveling (does anyone NOT have traveling as an interest?), meeting new people, coffee, dancing, just having fun, reading, exploring, spending time with friends, trying craft beers, indoor rockclimbing (would like to try outdoor sometime), diving....

Music, Movies, and Books

to kill a mockingbird is my most favorite book ever. other good reads - catcher in the rye, the glass castle, into the wild, lovely bones, the kite runner, wild...

the music i dig is anything i can dance to really. or sing along with. which... doesn't really narrow it down at all.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

snorkeling the great barrier reef was pretty darn awesome. there have been others but that's the first thing that comes to mind.

iguazu falls was simply stunning. easily one of the most beautiful places i've been to in my life.

Seeing two whale sharks while diving in Thailand.

Teach, Learn, Share

what can i teach?? hmmm... well i can easily say the alphabet backwards. i suppose i could teach that. and i'm a very beginner at juggling. And I can teach English. :)

learn ... i would so love to learn a new language. :) spanish is coming along... slowly but surely.

share... i'd like to share any and all travel stories in exchange for any or all of your travel stories. all travelers inspire me.
