About Me

Hello! My name is Laura, I am 22 years old and just graduated from the University of Wisconsin Madison with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies. I am attending graduate school in the Fall for Clinical Social Work and currently work at a counseling center, as a nanny and as a volleyball coach.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My boyfriend and I are backpacking through Europe during the month of March and we are excited to explore Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Florence, Venice, Rome, Barcelona and Madrid.


I love traveling, yoga, volleyball, really anything active! I also love kids and helping others! I have only traveled outside of the US one time to Mexico but am very passionate about exploring the rest of the world!
