About Me

Hi, I’m Jaclyn

I have spent more than 15 years in digital marketing, media, and journalism. I never left the country until I was 32 years old — and even then it was only because someone else bought me a ticket.

I am here to share my experiences and what I have learned — but especially that travel is possible for anyone, and it will change your life.
