About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learn something new everyday.

ABOUT ME

I love all things outdoors. I can't stand staying in one place for extended periods of time, and so I love traveling, experiencing new cultures and exploring the world!

My husband and I have just moved to Panama City and are looking to make some friends - Panamanian and from anywhere. I was living in Boulder, Colorado for 7 years and have also lived in Washington DC, Seattle, Spain, and Alaska (which is where I grew up).

I am passionate about the exchange of cultures, ideas and education! I previously worked with international exchange students for almost 7 years and have really loved meeting people from all over the world.

PHILOSOPHY

Quam bene vivas refert, non quam diu - The important thing isn't how long you live, but how well you live. (Seneca)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not a ton, but I have Couchsurfed in Geneva and Albuquerque. It was great!

Hosted two amazing guests at our home in Boulder over Christmas.

Interests

I enjoy learning about people, their interests and their language. I enjoy running and exercise. My husband and I love having friends over for dinner, drinks and playing board games.
