About Me

I'm an Ohio State graduate with a huge love of college football and since moving to Europe a Real Madrid fan! I left my job at Disney world to move to Spain and teach English but I kept some extra pixie dust ;). I'm a dog lover, equality fighter, wanderluster that is currently moving back to Spain after spending the summer au pairing in Rome. I love to work out (though I definitely still indulge in ice cream) and love meeting new people and learning in new cultures!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Well if I'm being honest a friend told me about it and somehow I accidentally became verified looking into it. Ha ha ha now I'm so excited to meet more people that are passionate about travel and share in my open mindedness!


I love to sing and dance. I'm a travel addict that always takes on the challenge of picking up a new language! I'm a cafe connoisseur (I figure there are worse things I could be addicted to than coffee), that says yes to pretty much any and all new experiences. And when coffee won't help there's always wine (...or tequila).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Not single handedly knocking down the door of the Castilla La Mancha ministry of education when they didn't pay us for two months?

Teach, Learn, Share

Hmm if I had to pick one thing for each: teach that we all are connected by one shared humanity no matter where we come from, learn from different life perspectives, and share positivity by always paying it forward.

Also in Italy I learned always share your alcohol because he who drinks alone dies.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Passion, laughter, mindfulness and if none of those three a bottle of wine always.

Costa Rica, France, Ireland, Italy, Portugal
