Panna Watkins bio
Discovery and Development Field Representative

Originally from Bangkok, Thailand.  Panna moved to the United States in 1998 at the age of 14 to study English.  She is fluent in English and Thai.  She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Cal State University of Long Beach.  Being an artist at heart, her dream is to one day have an art school in Thailand and work to give back in the village. Having grown up in Thailand, Panna has extensive knowledge and expertise about the six distinctive regions that comprise Thailand.  These regions have their own unique customs, practices, traditions and rituals.


Panna’s passion for traveling and exploring the world in part comes from being a firm believer in living a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle.  She believes that balance in life is extremely important, because it affects the well-being of individuals, families and communities.  In her dedication to both physical and mental
well-being, she has explored various techniques for both fitness training and personal development.  She has learned to slow down and be more aware in this fast-paced world, get in touch with her inner self, and be grateful for her blessings in life.
