À propos de moi


Save up to buy a house in the Grand Rapids area, then adopt my next dog.


I am a financially free woman, whimsical, determined, and a victim of photic sneezing. I have some pretty lofty goals that I am very driven to reach.


I have two:

1. There is always a bright side. Find it, embrace it.
2. If you keep on dancin', you'll never grow old. (Thanks, Steve Miller Band!)

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing


I host and I surf, although I haven't in a long time due to the living situations I've been in for the past few years. I look forward to settling down and buying a house of my own so I can host people again.


I have surfed in Salt Lake City, Portland, Boise, London, and Berlin. I hosted a few people when I lived with my sister in Fort Collins, CO but haven't hosted since, unfortunately. :o(

Une aventure extraordinaire que j'ai vécue

More than one: I climbed the third flat iron in Boulder. I solo'd Sugar Loaf Rock on Mackinac Island in Michigan. I ran around the perimeter of Mackinac Island (8.2 miles) in an hour and 8 minutes, which is my PR.

Enseignez, apprenez, partagez

I can teach you a little German or Chinese. I can teach you how to better connect with your dog. I'd like to learn more Spanish. I'd really like to learn how to fix cars, sail a boat, and ride a motorcycle. I love to share stories about music and traveling, philosophies on how people tick, etc
