About Me


I'm writing a memoir about my sister and me.


I'm adventurous, have a good spirit, and am a loyal friend.


We are on the earth to do good, to help our neighbor, and to make the world a better place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted a few people and been hosted by a few people.


When I was in Oregon last spring researching my book I stayed with someone who has become a good friend. I also grew up in a household that hosted international students, so welcoming people of other cultures into my home has been a natural part of my life.


I'm currently writing a memoir about me and my sister. I also volunteer at the local Holocaust Museum, as a literacy tutor, and as a hospital chaplain.
My mother is a food historian, as well as a very good cook. Food is a big part of our lives. She also gardens and sews. And we both love word puzzles.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Giving birth has to be one of life's highs, something that left me forever changed when I got a glimpse of the forces that run around and through us that we can only witness and be grateful for.
