About Me

After living eight years in San Francisco, I moved to Guatemala to volunteer as a Medical Projects Coordinator at a nonprofit in the summer of 2015. Love took me to Cleveland, OH for the next five months, and then a dream job landed me back in my hometown of Atlanta, GA. I'm excited to be back in a (somewhat) new city, meet new people and share my experiences.

MISSION

To be present, live in the moment. Open my eyes to more, listen deeper, and find the beauty in everyone.

ABOUT ME

I love meeting people and learning about different cultures. I live for travel and am eager for the never-ending journey to see as much of the world as possible. Of all my adventures, San Francisco is still my favorite.

PHILOSOPHY

Gratitude.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love showing people the beauty that my city has to offer. In return, I hope to find others with the same sentiment when I am traveling.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Most of mine have been last minute so I decided to get on couch surfing to make it a little more organized and helpful. However, I enjoy the spontaneity and excitement of meeting new people and things always seem to work out in the most magnificent ways.

Interests

I love running, working out, yoga, being outdoors, cooking, salsa dancing, learning new languages and appreciating every moment.
