About Me

Trying not to work too hard...

Hello! My nam is Kat and I am a nurse practitioner. I used to travel a lot and now I work a lot. I am passionate about healthcare and about free access to healthcare. I wish the world would slow down a bit. I worry about the environment and I hate smart phones. That about sums me up!


No borders. Education, food, shelter, healthcare for all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love couchsurfing and what it represents. I think traveling is a privilege and this is one way to make it a bit more accessible. My current roommates have outlawed my couchsurfing requests but I can give advice when needed! I tend to look out for local free things and would love to invite you to them.
I am NOT on here to date so please respect that :-)


Always amazing. Defined my trip through Mexico and now I hope I can give back to people in the same!

Music, Movies, and Books

I really love Hip Hop/ R&B/ and Soul.
I love MANY movies and lets say top five are Shawshank Redemption, Old Boy, Adaptation, City of God and The Graduate.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hitchhiked across Mexico couchsurfing, staying with friends and family of friends from home for four months. Met so many people, saw so many places, and had a crazy time!

Teach, Learn, Share

Well I am about to be a nurse practitioner so I guess that means I can diagnose your illnesses? hopefully it does not come to that... BUT I can talk to you about the US healthcare system and make you cry or I can talk about the human body which is amazing. Other than that I love cooking with other people and learning/sharing SKILLS.

Countries I’ve Visited

Benin, Burkina Faso, Canada, Côte d'Ivoire, France, Honduras, Mexico, Russian Federation, South Africa, Togo

Countries I’ve Lived In

Ghana, Mexico, United States
