About Me


Hola! I've been living in Panama for the last two years and I really love it. I live in Panama City and work with members of rural Panamanian communities. I've also lived in Peru, Colombia, and Chile and loved every minute of it. I have an adventurous spirit and like to meet new people, explore new places, and try new things. Open minded, social, and happy to be in Latin America : )

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meetings, events, hosting and surfing when I can.


I love couchsurfing! I have couchsurfed around Colombia, Peru, and Panama and had really great experiences. I have also met a lot of amazing people through CS groups : )


I love traveling to new countries and exploring Latin America. I am hoping to learn some Portuguese so that I can head to Brazil :) Art and crafting are two of my passions, especially clay sculpture. I am currently learning to work with metals, crochet, and make hats. I also really enjoy music, concerts, and going out dancing. I love being in nature and really enjoy outdoor activities like backpacking, hiking, kayaking, surfing, and snowboarding. I feel way more comfortable in the mountains or in the forest than I do in the city.
