Home Jeanette

Jeanette as most of her friends call her in New York, is a graduate of Mass Communications from the University of the Philippines, acquired her Masters Degree in Business and Marketing from the University of Liverpool. She’s a marketing strategist who’s passion for writing drove her to pursuit a career in journalism. Being well travelled, she combines this passion with a vision to discover the world and sharing her experiences with a wider audience.

This Filipino achiever is a risk taker and a very passionate and patient person. A snap-happy bookworm with an incurable zest for travel, the thrill of hopping into the next flight keeps her going.

The more Jeanette travels, the more she feels the need to document her experiences and give fellow travel enthusiasts some insight into potential destinations with first-hand education that only travel can provide.

Jeanette does not travel to simply check countries off a list. Apart from visiting popular sights that a particular destination may offer, she prefers to focus on the human interactions and lessons learned along the way. She is a lover of nature, a foodie and a mom to everyone. She intends to serve the industries she writes about and is determined to come up with solutions in the same way she has overcome hardships in the past to achieve what she feels brings out the best in her.
