Jemma is from Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. She moved to Ecuador in September 2009 and lived in Cuenca for 8 years breeding and competing horses. She also ran an equestrian school that provided riding instruction to adults, kids, and special needs people.

In 2017, Jemma moved to the coast, where she taught English in a high school until she met Tom and Lynn. Now I have an amazing job meeting all kinds of people and feel blessed to be able to help them while visiting or relocating to Ecuador.
