About Me


Moving to Marin to Raise Money for Orphaned Chidlren in Peru


I am a generous person with a warm smile and a big heart. I am savvy in the world with culture and people as well as have genuine big spirit. I love to meet people from all over the world and connect the people and classes to bridge any gaps. I am courageous and driven when I want to achieve something or get somewhere. I am creative in my approach in how I make decisions and have more aptitude in service work. I like to have fun and love good food and wine.


Live large and go for it with a whole heart! Always love your neighbor first and cherish each day as if it's your last. Be open and aware always as you never know what is around the corner. Expect miracles always.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


none. new at it. I have attended a potluck in St. Louis once and have many friends that are Couch Surfers.


I am very spiritual and love all things around bringing a higher state of awareness to life to make it the fullest brightest possible aligned day. One after the other. I love learning about ancient wisdom traditions. Like Shamanism, Yoga and other traditions and cultures. I love working with the impoverished people in the High Andes in Peru as well as enjoy a wonderful dining experience in a trendy dining spot in an urban city. I love the outdoors and natural settings. I hike, walk and when I'm in St. Louis MO I love my dog, Sasha.

Music, Movies, and Books

Eastern Body, Western Mind by Anodea Judith. The Return of the Inka A Journey of Initiation and Inka Prophecies for 2012.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hiked the Inca Trail and Lares Trek in Peru that where wonderful experiences up to 15,000 feet 3 times. I have lived in the Sacred Valley of Peru for the past year, started a non-profit charity following a calling to help the impoverished children in the High Andes. I also left a high powered corporate job in the clothing industry to move to Byron Bay, Australia to do a year long yoga teacher training program. So very courageous and adventurous.
