Jinny is a certified businesswoman in foreign trade and speaks German, English and Spanish, working as a freelance translator and content writer alongside her project management role at AJT. Prior to this, she worked as a transport planner in the UK and in an export role in Germany.
Jinny’s background is truly international: Cornish mum, German dad, Mexican sister-in-law, Costa Rican husband and children. She has been living in Costa Rica for the last 10 years having met her husband while volunteering at a wildlife sanctuary in his village.
Incredibly passionate about animal welfare, Jinny regularly takes in street dogs to foster at home. She’s crazy about penguins and once fulfilled a dream by volunteering in a penguin sanctuary in South Africa. Despite being bitten, she still loves them!
Jinny’s spare time is spent going for long walks and exploring beautiful Costa Rica with her family and her four rescue dogs, followed by some serious relaxing in her hammock as the howler monkeys and toucans provide the entertainment.
