About Me

I am from the midwest (United States). I grew up hosting exchange students in high school and have been fortunate enough to be able to visit them all in the last few years. I have travelled to several countries in Europe, Central America and all over North America. I work as a registered nurse two days a week and am in graduate school to become a nurse practitioner. My schedule is flexible that I can often have 5-6 days off in a row, and I like to spend that time with my dog and cats, going out with my friends, hiking or riding my bike and watching live music.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am looking for places to stay when I travel abroad. I hope to make new friends and continue to have more authentic experiences when exploring new places. I would also love to return the favor and host other travelers.

PLEASE do not request to stay with me if you have no references. It’s okay if you’re new to Couchsurfing.. have an established person you know write a personal reference. I will not accept a request without anything eluding to who you are.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to hip-hop, indie and alternative music. I like documentaries, stand-up specials and crime shows. I read non-fictional, classic literature and poetry.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rode my bike across the state of Iowa for a week in the largest organized cycling trip in the world. It involved camping outdoors every night and consuming an unsafe amount of alcohol and was very fun.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a respectful and pleasant person. I like long walks, and make for a good drinking buddy. I am also a pretty decent cook. I love to explore and also have a passion for discussing music!
