About Me

I am a 28 year old 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, Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada and all over the United States. I am constantly planning new trips, including Paris and London in the spring and am looking to travel to Thailand in the summer. 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 of course studying.

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.

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to hip-hop, indie and alternative music. I like comedies, romance, action and suspense films. I read non-fictional, informative books and poetry.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I like to try adventurous things that frighten me. Most recently I went rock climbing this year on my birthday.. next I would like to try sky-diving.
