About Me

I live in North Jersey with my husband (whom I happened to meet through couchsurfing friends... shameless plug!) and 99-year-old grandfather. We take care of gramps and I teach high school history in Newark, NJ.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Whenever I have the extra space and time for hosting, I love to do so. I have been a member for 12+ years and have had lots of great experiences meeting others in lots of US states and three continents!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've worked as a masseuse, yoga teacher, dance teacher, hydrology teacher, art teacher, English teacher, business woman, web-site developer, graphic artist, meditation teacher, cook, caterer, and a few more things. I've helped build houses in Mexico, plant permaculture gardens in Arizona, and was the captain of a cheerleading team that was 2nd place in the USA for competitive cheerleading. I have run two non-profits and one for-profit, built straw bale cabins, and spent a total of 6 months living totally alone in the wilderness. I lived 3 years teaching English in North Africa, and grew to call it home. I have great friends all over the word who make my life rich and fulfilling.
