About Me


Jumping into new adventures...exploring healing


I have lived in Oregon for 10+ years. Before this, I was in Arizona. I have been an informal couchsurfer for all of my life, by both hosting and staying with friends as I travel or friends-of-friends.

I have a practice in acupuncture and energy medicine. As I travel I like to learn other forms of natural healing. Since 2008 I have been spending time in Oaxaca, Mexico each winter and exploring the indigenous healing there as well as doing projects offering community style acupuncture and teaching acupressure. Wherever I go I like to find the salsa dance scene - especially salsa Cubana/rueda de casino!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have mostly participated by gathering information about places I am travelling to. I met a couchsurfer in Mexico and it inspired me to connect more through this great site.
For most of my life I have friends-of-friends and staying with people around the world. Right now I am not hosting but I would be happy to meet and help you explore Eugene or to go for a hike in the incredibly beautiful mountains around here.
