About Me

I'm a newspaper reporter (believe it or not, that is still a thing) working for the daily here in Spokane. I love telling stories and meeting new people, partly so my old friends don't get stuck hearing about my adventures over and over, but mostly because I find everyone's experiences and quirks fascinating.

In my spare time, I'm a roller derby girl and skate with the Snake Pit Derby Dames in Coeur D'Alene.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to host folks coming through town when I'm available, and I'd love to meet local Couchsurfers too!


I've hosted a few couples and solo travelers here in Spokane.
