My guest in this episode is Rachel Jensen. With a background in biology and Spanish, and an original intent of continuing onto Medical School, Rachel Jensen’s life took a 180 degree turn after her first medical mission trip to Nicaragua.
Rachel joined the ECI Development team in 2012, starting as the organization’s marketing intern at the administrative offices in Managua, Nicaragua. At the end of her 3-month internship period, she had to make a decision between accepting a full-time position with ECI, or chasing her dreams in Panama with the US Peace Corps. She ultimately chose ECI Development. Originally from the suburbs of New York, Rachel now calls San Pedro, Belize home.
Today, Rachel is the Vice President of Sales & Marketing for ECI Development, a regional development company based throughout Latin America in Costa Rica, Belize, Panama and Nicaragua. From the ground up, she has built and grown the sales and marketing department at the Grand Baymen community. Due to her strong passion of connecting folks with international real estate that meets their goals, she was awarded Sales Person of the Year for 2014, 2015 and 2016. In addition, Rachel structured the Teak for Residency Program in both Panama and Nicaragua to assist those looking to pair up a residency with alternative options outside of their home countries.
Rachel is a resident of Panama and thoroughly enjoys the Latin American lifestyle. She is often on the road educating folks at international events about the markets and opportunities abroad.
In 2017, Rachel was invited to be a founding member of the Rotaract Club of Ambergris Caye and was recently elected for the club’s Director of Professional Development. Furthermore, Ms. Jensen is the co-founder of a bi-annual women’s retreat, “5 Days to Freedom,” helping guide women towards financial, spiritual and international freedom.
