Hi, I am Michaela the founder of JAXPATS

Someone once asked me what 3 words would I use to describe who am I using only 3 words. I responded I am a Proud European Woman. Since I moved to the USA more than 10 years ago I have always found myself seeking people that have an international background like me. I have met and made many friends that were foreigners from all over the world like me and call America their home. It was in 2019 when I relocated from California to Jacksonville, FL with my whole family. I left my secure corporate job in San Diego, CA, and started a new life in the city that is known as First Coast. I have never visited JAX before but our family fell in love with its vibe. To share my love for diversity and foreign culture I started writing about various foreign food options, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about diversity in this city. I founded JAXPATS with a mission to give others ex-pats a taste of what goes on in my mind and successfully connect with likeminded people. If you would like to collaborate with me and share the love for diversity via JAXPATS, please contact me via below contact form.
