About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To see the world and help others

ABOUT ME

Lets see... I believe in being spontaneous foremost. I prefer dark beers and live music over frilly cocktails and karaoke. I'm easy going and enjoy meeting new people. I love to read, do anything outdoors, and paint. I want to travel as much as I can and make a difference while I'm on this earth. I went to school for art and that turned into nursing. I began my travel nursing career back in 2011 and it has taken me across the United States where I have been privileged to meet all sorts of people. My boyfriend and I recently took the plunge and decided to quit our jobs and start our new chapter in San Francisco, CA. My hometown is Knoxville, TN...where my roots will forever be in that scruffy little town! I enjoy helping others and will do everything I can to make people around me feel comfortable. Call it my "humble southern hospitality" qualities if you must...

PHILOSOPHY

To see and do as much as I can while on this earth and help/encourage others to try and do the same.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Making people feel like home when they're away from home...

The best thing about couchsurfing is that you are taking in a complete stranger into your home, and saying goodbye to an amazing friend when they leave.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being completely lost in Athens, Greece for an entire day.. never finding my place and deciding to leave all of my stuff behind to travel on. Driving out west to see the Grand Canyon solo, only to become completely entrapped by a snow storm making the view from the south rim essentially non-existent. (Also, another snow storm on same trip just days before in Utah left road closed to my hotel so I had to camp in my Jeep in 5 degree weather 90 miles from nearest hotel without any phone service.)
