Episode 47: Jackie Parry - Adventurer, Writer, Lover of Life

“You are responsible for your own happiness.”

Jackie Parry is an adventurer. There is no other word which describes her more perfectly and for over 20 years, she has had the most incredible adventures. She and her husband Noel have sailed the world, trekked the Australian bush with adopted horses, traversed European canals in a Dutch Barge and that’s not all! It would be fair to say…Jackie does not sit still for long.

What I loved most about Jackie’s story is that it started with a tragic story which not only shook her to the core but encouraged her to take life by the scruff of the neck and live it to its fullest.

    An absolute pleasure to share my story and some of my learnings along the way. Leanne, you have a beautiful interview technique, and I enjoyed every minute. I loved listening to this, even though I was there! That’s the first time I’ve said that about any interview I even laughed in all the right places. Fun!
