About Me


To travel nonstop for the next 10 years.


I recently graduated with my Masters in Public Health from Emory University. I majored in public health at Tulane University in New Orleans (graduated 2013).

While in college, I studied abroad in Geneva, Switzerland. I recently spent a summer in Phnom Penh, Cambodia working on an evaluation of a clinic for a local non-governmental organization.


Everything works out in the end :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I used Couchsurfing for the first time while traveling to Copenhagen and Athens back in 2012. Love the community of sharing and meeting new people!
