He asked me to marry him and then we were off, literally!

Hi! I’m Jasmine. My story began with a shift from a medical career plan to discovering my true calling in a non-profit organization. In 2016, I married my love, Gozie, in a whirlwind rush due to his commitments to the Foreign Service and an upcoming assignment to Morocco. The challenges of expat life became my inspiration, leading to the foundation of The Jazzy Nation.

From teaching in Morocco to exploring India and neighboring countries in 2018, each experience added layers to my journey. The 2020 global pandemic led me to support American expats in India with the U.S. Embassy, and in 2021, I reconnected with my roots in the United States.

Most recently, Gozie and I welcomed our one-year-old son into the adventure. We’re excited to show him the world and open doors of opportunity as he grows into the person he’s meant to be.

Now in Ecuador, I’m ready to immerse myself in this new adoptive country and continue sharing the journey with you. Join me, and let’s inspire each other to explore the world and turn our dreams into adventures!
