About Me

I am a 24-year-old woman living in Oregon. I was born and raised in California. I am a nanny for two amazing boys, ages 7 and 9. I am an environmental and social justice activist. I spend a lot of my time volunteering for various non-profits. I am passionate about spending time in nature and protecting it. I enjoy hiking, swimming, biking, singing, exploring new places, and reading. I'm laid back and easy to get along with.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing because I love meeting new people! I prefer Couchsurfing to hotels and AirBNB because I want to get to know the people and be immersed in the culture of the places I am traveling to. I love hearing people's stories and getting to know them, and Couchsurfing is really perfect for that!
