Jackie grew up in Long Island, NY and found her love for the outdoors through hiking/camping trips in Vermont every summer and skiing every other weekend in the winter. Her sense of adventure grew further during her years at the University of New Hampshire where she pursued travel to Central America, Europe, and Asia during her off time. After completing her degree and becoming a Registered Dietitian, Jackie has balanced life as a tour guide and a traveling dietitian. Both passions have seen her travel around the world from working in hospitals in the Caribbean and leading tours across New Zealand. Outside of work, you can find Jackie hiking in New England, skiing in Colorado, or spending time back in New York.
