Wow!” Jackie explains.
Despite having spent most of her life in Alaska, Jackie has had the opportunity to travel all over the world thanks to a mother who believed that travel was one of the best educations one could receive, as well as the fact that she has relatives in Europe and Indonesia, and her father worked in the Middle East for a time.
