No stranger to “international living,” Jess Ramesch has lived on the Indian subcontinent and floated all around the Caribbean (and some snazzy parts of Europe, too). Her first job was delivering newspapers in the cold Oregonian winter. After that, she tried her hand at just about everything she could think of. She has sailed the open seas, volunteered around the world, and made television appearances, too. Jess is a University of Richmond alum, an author and public speaker, and a resident of Coronado Beach, Panama. Though home is where the heart is, travel is her first love. She is constantly on the road, in the air, and on the water—exploring Panama and the wide world beyond. Jess Ramesch hosted and produced IL bestseller Panama 101 and she is the author of Escape to Panama.
