I am adventurous, honest and passionate about life. I am a great support for my friends and family and they depend on me for honest advice and input. Healthy eating/living is very important to me for the environmental implications and also because of my dietary restrictions ( gluten free). I started my own company to educate others about these issues.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I volunteer at the main theater of Atlanta, at local events, local gardens and many other places. I also referee lacrosse for elementary, middle and high school girls and am very involved in student programs. I liked to b involved in my community in the environment, arts, music, sports and whatever else I can do. I want to use my business degrees to help small businesses secure funding and maximize efficiency of their processes o help them succeed ultimately.
None so far.
I am very active in the arts through painting, dance, music and theatre. I also enjoy athletic things like tumbling, hiking, ice skating, martial arts, running, etc. I really like to be involved in local community efforts especially in community gardens, farms markets, etc. I love music (I sing and play things) and I like to be involved in the local music an art scene.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Seeing the stone formations on the top of Montserrat in Catalonia, Spain. these formations are as tall as the tallest skyscrapers and are amazingly detailed given their size and placement. There are gorillas, an elephant, a sphinx. It is unreal. I met a guide in a cave there who had lived on the mountain for 40 years. Climbing those crazy formations with him and a passivity drill Sargent from Norway I met on the train there was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach all kinds of crazy athletic things like capoeira, tumbling, gymnastics, ice skating, lacrosse, and others. I am an MBA student so I can help (and learn) with business things. My undergraduate degree is in international environmental policy. I started my own company called leaf love based on forming a community for vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and other restricted eaters. I am a good writer and have a blog on leaf ole, as well as on my school's website ( georgia state).
