About Me

I'm a traveler at heart but have settled back in my home region of Central Illinois while I completed a masters program in Nonprofit Leadership. Since then, I've opened a Healing Arts nonprofit where we work to make practices like yoga, meditation, and plant medicine more accessible to all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

After spending a year freelancing and traveling around Europe, I wanted to open up my home the way so many others have done for me. Whether you're coming for a conference, event, or to explore our midwest river town, you'll find a comfortable room, a friendly cat, some warm meals, and local tips here! I also hope to travel through Couchsurfing more throughout the US and meet locals in their corners of the states.

Music, Movies, and Books

While studying English in school I was drawn to turn of the century literature (Picture of Dorian Gray, The Awakening), magical realism (Jorges Borges), and Absurdist Lit (Waiting for Godot). I also love a good sci-fi novel (Fahrenheit 451, The Dispossessed). I had trouble getting back into reading for fun after studying. Have mostly been reading books on Nonprofit Leadership and contemporary trauma recovery for my yoga work.

I'll never watch a TV show I enjoyed more than West Wing. Bluesy, Folsky music is what I tend to listen to most. Always going back to Black Keys, Avett Brothers, Ben Sollee. Always love female voices like Margo Price, Waxahatchee, Hurray for the Riff Raff.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I haven't been solo traveling as much as a lot of people I know, but I did once take a trip to Tenerife, met some incredible humans through couchsurfing and hostels, and went actual surfing, which was a big accomplishment for this midwestern girl!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a yoga teacher-- if you're interested, we can practice together. I love to cook and will hopefully be able to share a meal with you.
