After a Texas summer with 100+ Fahrenheit weather for 90 days straight, Jackie decided she wanted to move to a place where she would never need air conditioning or a heater again. She wanted to live in a place where her windows could be open every day for fresh air! She researched and visited several different countries and picked Panama because of it’s strong economy, friendly people, safe, weather, and affordable prices.

Shortly after moving to Panama in 2010, friends asked her to show them Panama and teach them how to move to Panama too.  She did a tour for eight friends.  Then others started calling to learn how to relocate to Panama so Panama Relocation Tours was born in 2010. Jackie has completed 172 relocation tours and helped thousands of people relocate to Panama the easy way.

Jackie lives in Boquete, Panama, a town in the highlands with daytime temps in the mid-70s all year long. Prior to moving to Panama, Jackie was a real estate investor in Texas and taught classes on creative real estate investing.
