Jenny first visited Latin America as a student, setting off a longstanding love of Latin culture, vibrancy and musicality that would soon see her return to backpack across South America.

Product and Marketing

Before joining Journey Latin America in 2008, Jenny enjoyed a diverse career ranging from marketing films for IMAX and UGC Cinemas to setting up her own business. Jenny has a master's degree in Art History, speaks Italian and is an adventurous traveller with a giant repertoire of anecdotes from all over the world.

Jenny first visited Latin America in the summer before starting university, putting her student loan to good use! The six weeks she spent in Mexico were the start of a longstanding love of Latin culture, vibrancy and musicality that would soon see her return to backpack across South America. Jenny rates Cusco, Rio and the Atacama Desert amongst the highlights of her travels, and also loved Nicaragua’s Corn Islands, which she describes as reminiscent of how the Caribbean must have been 50 years ago. She is an avid scuba diver when she gets the chance, but will happily settle for fancy dress parties and skiing.
