Ana Fernandez

After spending her childhood regularly moving between what they termed the “Fernandez” triangle (Venezuela, Great Britain, and Canada), Ana’s family settled in Canada in 1965, making Toronto their home for several years. When her family returned to Venezuela in the early 70’s, Ana decided to make Canada her permanent home.

In 1980 she moved to beautiful British Columbia. Ana worked in the financial services sector for many years. Then, after surviving more time than she cares to admit in the bone-chilling cold of Northern BC, she headed south to sunny Mazatlan. Although she began her Mexican adventure as a snowbird, Ana has now made Mexico her full time home. In the summers she still visits family and friends in Canada, and considers herself very blessed to be able to do that.

"In my life's journey, I have learned to be flexible, patient and try not to sweat the small stuff. Of course, the aging process has helped a lot with this too! I have two wonderful adult children but no grandkids to spoil yet. I also enjoy giving back to the community and, in both Mazatlan and Canada, I try my best to find time to spend on worthy causes that are close to my heart."

Since 2013 Ana has been offering air ambulance plans as one of the options available to expats and snowbirds. In 2015 a new player entered the scene, offering a program that is unique and custom developed for the needs of travelers to Mexico. International Insurance Group (IIG) partnered with Air Ambulance Worldwide (AAW) to create Travel MedEvac Insurance LLC.

Travel MedEvac Insurance (TME) was two years in the making and is now the most comprehensive air evacuation insurance plan available…their main focus is Mexico. They also cover North America (U.S., Canada, Mexico), Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Caribbean (including Cuba), Central America and most other countries worldwide.

AAW keeps annual permits to enter Mexico on all their aircraft.  Having dedicated aircraft to ensure consistency in top quality to members is very important to Ana. And in the rare circumstance that all AAW’s air ambulances are in service on the same day, they have a specialized reciprocity agreement with other air ambulance companies that meet their strict criteria of aircraft and medical personnel to cover every situation. AAW adheres to and is certified with the highest accreditation for air ambulances in the world (EURAMI).

As an added bonus through her affiliation with Mexico Insurance OnlineSeven CornersIMG as well as We Expats, Ana is now able to offer other travel service plans such as short-term travel medical insurance, expat healthcare, auto/RV liability coverage for Mexico as well as home insurance.

"I am here to serve the needs of Mexico bound travelers and residents and will always strive to ensure that I have the very best products or services available for them. I look forward to serving my community for many years to come!"
