About Me


see and learn as much as I possibly can!


I am originally from Alabama, USA. I have traveled in the United States and numerous places in Europe. I just completed my Master's program and will be moving with my husband somewhere in the US- preferably south east US. For now we are in Germany waiting on our immigration case to be complete so we can return to the US.


I hate routine... I thrive on spontaneity and the excitement of learning something unknown... my lifespan is 24 hours...I don't expect the future, but I prepare for it...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't even have a couch to offer right now... but hopefully one day! But I'd love to meet anybody for coffee and exploring!


all have been great! no better than great!


I love to discover new places, try to learn new languages, and try different foods, wines and beers of course. I always say try everything twice maybe three times, then you can truly judge it.

I love music- it's always on in my house or in my head- ALWAYS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen a lot of things that could be considered "amazing". But after seeing places and things in numerous countries, I am still mostly amazed by nature. The one thing that stands out in my mind especially is when I first saw the Alps when flying to Italy. That's one place I'm ready to go to ASAP.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm passionate about children with special needs and early intervention therapies. I could also talk about food for hours- growing it, cooking it, eating it, what is good/bad about it... etc.
