About Me


Live, Love and Laugh and fill each minute to the fullest because there aren't enough minutes left.


I am ecclectic. VERY ecclectic. I am open-minded and free-spirited. I used to be a clown and asst. animal trainer in the 3rd largest tented Circus in North America. We played a different town every day. I met a LOT of people while traveling and had a ton of unique experiences.

I recently took up fire-spinning/dancing and started a firespining troupe called BlazeMania. We have performed at several big gigs already. It's awesome, seriously, try it someday!

I was a professional psychic. I give tarot readings. Yes, it was my day job! I got kind of burned out so now I only give readings occasionally. I will give readings to fellow couch surfers that show up though!

Currently, I am back to plying my trade as a painter. I paint murals and do decorative and faux finish painting. Odd fact about me: I can't paint a regular picture on a canvas. Evidently I cannot limit myself to such a small box. Give me a wall and I am happy. I also make custom stained glass and custom jewelry.

Unplanned experiences are the best. Life, like Jazz, often happens best between the notes. My life is filled with music because my husband is a musician. He has a jazz combo and a classic rock band. I listen to anything except hiphop or rapp.

I have a LOT of indoor pets, so if you are allergic or afraid of dogs, cats or wolves, you probably don't wanna crash on my couch! Special Note: the cat fur is free!

My location has (oddly enough) a pretty good space museum called the Cosmosphere. come check it out!

I am the leader of a group called Hutchinson Area Paranormal Investigations. We are an actual active ghost hunting group. Maybe you can come along on an investigation! Oh yeah, my house is a bit haunted too. It is not active all the time, but when it is active... well, let's just say you won't forget the experience!

I am ALSO a full-time student (online) finishing up my bachelors degree in Psychology, so it will be a bit before I can get back to traveling. In the meantime, come share your experiences with me so I can live vicariously through your travels!


Every person's life touches the lives of those around them in some significant manner. Even the slightest nod or smile of acceptance however insignificant it seemed, can make a world of difference to someone else. I live my life to experience life as fully as possible and to touch as many lives as I can in a positive manner. Life is short, live it well.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I just found out about this site, but am already telling all my traveling friends. I think it's awesome and can't wait to get out there and meet some of you in person! And even if you don't crash on my couch, stop by and I will give you a tarot reading!


When I was with the circus, the engine on my RV blew up a week into the schedule. I was contracted for a whole year. I had to live in a Mitsubishi pickup truck and a tent from walmart. Most of that year was a quest to find a BATHTUB. I could get showers at truck stops, but I wanted a long soak in a real TUB!

I actually met many kind people across the USA that offered me their homes for baths, showers and couches so I didn't have to sleep in my tent! Kids loved having a real live clown in their house and a soft cushy couch was heaven compared to my tent and the hard ground. No I didnt use an air mattress.. they took too long to air up and take down. I worked 18 to 20 hours every day, 7 days a week.

Music, Movies, and Books

comedies, anything by or with Kevin Smith, I love the Pirates of the Carribean movies. I like alternative and rock and roll best. Right now I am really into Three Day Grace, Puddle of Mud, Tool... I read almost anything. I prefer light fluffy stories, like the stephanie plum novels or anything by sophie kinsela, I like harry potter books, and science fantasy books (Douglas Adams).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I traveled the US with the circus and saw a lot of really beautiful places. When I was driving down a back highway, trees lined the road, the sun was coming up, then all of a sudden, the trees fell away and it opened to a clearing. There was a waterfall and at the bottom of the waterfall was a momma bear and her cubs. It was breathtaking.

I have carried a leopard, ridden elephants, fed lions, been stepped on by a camel while I was sleeping,and entertained crowds of 3500-5000 at a time. I can psychically find lost pets and I can see ghosts.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy the opportunity to explore cultural exchanges without having to find my passport! I love to learn about new cultures and new people, and I love to share my odd little world with others that care to check it out!
