In case you were wondering… "Jackie"is the pronunciation of my name… I was born and raised in Nashville, but lived up north/Milwaukee area for half my life! Had a son/born in Nashville and a daughter/born in Milwaukee… been a wife and mother my whole life, a small business owner several times over... including a coffee shop with an outdoor music venue, and now manage properties. My GrandKids are my faVorite things in life! And… I love my entire, huge, big ole southern family: 5 brothers and a mess of kin folk that is still growing! I love having guests, cooking and entertaining, "fixing up" my house, working in the yard, family ancestry, astrology, and regularly enjoy Live music with my friends, most of which are musicians/singers!! I have traveled and vacationed a lot throughout the states… also Europe, Scandinavia, Spain, Hawaii, Canada, Bahamas, Mexico, Jamaica, Haiti and Belize Island upon many cruises to the Caribbean over the years and loved the journeys! But, I am just as content to be "at home"and have others visit me! I am hopeful that my travels and love for people bring all these experiences together to grow Airbnb as my new favorite hobby!!
