About Me


Connecting with fellow Gypsy souls. Cultural advocate. Global philanthropist. Sharing authentic experiences.


I work in Orthopaedics and I am a massage therapist. Proud single mom to some ridiculously high functioning young men. Im proud to live a Boy Scout life with them and we are navigating our way through it all using those core values.
Solo travel enthusiast. Nature lover. Tree hugger. Green Party. Humanitarian. Lover of life. Sunset chaser. Minimalist. Secret life of the badass. Sage burner. Crystal collector. Lover of bread, champagne, and coffee. Hiker. Camper. Kayaker. Van life goaler. I’m a Vegabond and grounded homeowner. I’m so many things, at different times to different people. Couch Surfing and solo travels allow me to be so many things. I am grateful
