About Me


To love big, live fully and enjoy.


I live in an open exploration about life and the body. I am committed to relationship with others, good communication, treating the earth respectfully, loving and living fully in my body, tending to my community and being a good mother and friend. I run my own business and love my work. I co-parent with my friend and x-partner and do my best to raise my son with love, awareness and connection to the elements. I love the wilderness and all things wild and creative and learn endlessly from the diversity of life on this magnificent planet. I love to dance and sing and create (moments, writings, crafts, food, etc...) and am well steeped in the dance community here in my town. I love gardening, growing food and being an activist for healthy, clean, organic food in my community. We are super blessed to live in an extrodinary place here in Ashland, Oregon and share our home with 3 other adults, 1 other child, 8 chickens, 2 cats and 2 dogs.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We love to travel and meet interesting people... and we love house-guests. We believe in sharing resources and good times and are passionate about furthering a peaceful society through understanding other cultures and ways of being on the planet.


In my younger years I hitchhiked, train-hopped, car-camped and traveled throughout the states and to various countries... and more recently, as a mother, have taken more to exploring closer to home, with occasional plane trips and still tons of camping. We love connecting with folks and learning from them. We have informally hosted and been hosted a lot and using couch-surfing and home-exchange have had some wonderful guests and great beds to sleep in. We are grateful for these wonderful platforms to share.
