About Me


Observe, experience & share


Born and raised in the Hudson Valley, studied Gender Studies and Sociology in college and then spent some time in Seattle volunteering with AmeriCorps. Currently working as a Health Educator and activist for a non-profit and enjoying a simple, quiet life before heading back to grad school for Teaching.

Someday I hope to maintain a sustainable homestead. Until then I'm having trouble keeping my cactus alive.


My year of service with the Quest program inspired me to live by the Quaker testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality - it's a work in progress.

Also, put away your cell phone and look up.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I've truly enjoyed meeting, hosting, and surfing with so many terrifically unique individuals from this site. Now is not an ideal time for me to host but I am always down for meeting up with travelers and locals for outdoor fun, live music, food adventures... you name it!


I enjoy people watching and the great outdoors - hiking, biking, kayaking and the likes. I also love cooking, movies, live music, and contra dancing.

Professional interests: Youth leadership development, public health, reproductive health and sexuality education.

Most likely to be one of those people in the news caught with wild animals in their home.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Rode horseback through Montana, ziplined in Orocovis, parasailed over Lake George, kayaked with gators, pet a cockroach at the Philly Zoo!

Teach, Learn, Share

I try to say "yes" as much as possible. And listen intently.
