Jasmine grew up a second-generation Canadian on the Western part of Canada in Edmonton, Alberta. She is a self-proclaimed city girl with a country soul. A true romantic, she is an avid cook and wine drinker. Jasmine studied Italian (and Russian, and Spanish and promptly forgot all but the former) and Pharmacy at the University of Alberta and thoroughly enjoyed her community pharmacy practice after graduating in 2013. She was a practicing pharmacist for just more than one year prior to packing her bags for Italy where she now resides indefinitely. Jasmine is currently a blogger, freelance writer, and works as an English tutor.
