About Me


To have the freedom to live a truthful life


I am a mother becoming someone's ex-wife, a yoga teacher, a yoga practitioner, a returned Peace Corps Volunteer from El Salvador, a university administrator, an English Teacher and an aspiring cook. I am putting the pieces back together after 22 years of marriage and very excited to be walking on my own path.


I live to practice how and not what, to live a truthful life and to feel purposeful, that each day would be better because I was a part of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't actually surfed or hosted yet, but look forward to being a part of your community.


I'm just getting started!

Music, Movies, and Books

Right now I'm reading "Blood, Bones and Butter", Gabrielle Hamilton and the last book I read was, "Inside of a Dog", Alexandra Horowitz. I love music and I love most genres. I'm a big Wes Anderson and Woody Allen fan.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen many amazing places, acts of love and lived a full life. Maybe the most amazing of all is stepping out of my comfort zone and finally letting go of my illusion of safety.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a lot to share and a lot to learn. I am 45 years old, but in many ways just beginning to walk on my own two feet.
