About Me


My current mission is to meet great people, learn about other cultures, and create some sweet travel networks!


I am a Registered Nurse, currently working in Labour and Delivery, Maternity. I feel blessed to have found a career I love. I enjoy learning about and connecting with people. I love diversity and learning. I like to party, music is huge for me, and I enjoy being outdoors, particularly by water, lakes, rivers, ocean! I like camping and hiking, love sports, snowboarding, volleyball, and my yoga!


I will use a few quick quotes to give you an idea of a few principles that make up my world view:

"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."

"To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is a kin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation."

"Say not 'I have found the truth' but rather, 'I have found a truth.'"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had the chance to both host and surf! I've also enjoyed being involved in local CS Community activities here in Vancouver. Pub night and hiking are always a hit!


I have managed to host a few surfers and surf a few couches so far, as well as get to know people through my local couch surfing community. It has been amazing! It's so refreshing to meet someone and feel like you've known them for years. Couch surfing has continually connected me with like-minded, friendly people!


More than anything I enjoy learning about people and culture, and the human experience we share together. Never a dull moment! I love to be active with running, yoga, and sports. I'm also trying to become more in touch with creativity and arts.
