Suzan Haskins


Suzan Haskins was born in Oklahoma, and grew up in Kansas, North Dakota, and New Jersey, before moving to Omaha in 1976. She has a degree in journalism from the University of Nebraska. She spent nearly 25 years working in corporate advertising and marketing in Omaha. Finally, she said “not another winter in Omaha” and began looking for a way to live where the weather and scenery were better and she could do more of the things she had always wanted to do.

Suzan Haskins was an International Living subscriber and started pestering the publisher for a job. In 2001, International Living relented, and hired Suzan and her husband, Dan Prescher, to work for IL in Quito, Ecuador. From there, the Haskins/Prescher team moved to Mexico. In 2006 and early 2007 they lived in Panama, and Nicaragua before recently returning to Merida, Mexico. She and Dan have just finished renovating a house in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. They also own property elsewhere in Mexico, and in Nicaragua and Ecuador.
