About Me


Meet others, give a little som'n, receive a little som'n


I used to help coordinate an exchange program between CA and France. I love to travel... love languages, cultures, and people!!! I'm pretty easy going. I love trying new things, new foods, new places, etc... but nothing compares to just getting to know people. I am Administrator for a free mobile medical clinic (soon adding dental), and I do disaster planning as a consultant for medical and health projects.


Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted several times, and I've couch-surfed in France and in Mexico.


I have hosted French visitors several times. I love introducing people to new experiences and parts of California, such as: California Wines, Gold Country, Yosemite, brownies, peanut butter, and Jello!


JESUS, foreign languages, travel, food, good movies, good books, good friends... and coffee!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I lived in Lake Tahoe for four years, and I thought there couldn't be such a beautiful place in the world, until I visited Lac Annecy in the Haute Savoie region of France. Incredible!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy learning new languages, and new cultures, trying new foods, etc. I enjoy helping others learn new things too, such as American foods and traditions for the first time... or tutoring English or Spanish.
