About Me

I've been teaching English as a Second Language in Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos (mostly in rural and mountainous areas) for most of the past 9 years and would like to return to the US for maybe one to three months for a health check-up and chiropractic treatment to relieve some disc compression causing numbness I don't appreciate in my lower legs and feet. Cramping my running/jogging and hiking style!The doctor I will see is in Houston, Texas so that's my current destination.

Before teaching in Southeast Asia, I was doing social work in healthcare, HIV, and with the elderly in Arizona, California and Hawai'i. I've been getting around! Like to meet all kinds of people from all kinds of places. Non-smoker. Don't drink much at all. Love helping people achieve their dreams with the skills I can share.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My immediate need (as soon as travel restrictions, documentation and costs to leave Cambodia return to fairly normal) is to find a temporary place to stay while I return to the US to get some chiropractic treatment in Houston with a great Doc! Could be short-term like a couple weeks to longer term--couple months possible. My guess is that this travel would be possible for sometime in the months of August through October 2022.
