TBEX Events and Conference Host Sponsor, Visit Billings, are delighted to announce Montana native Jackie Nourse of the hit podcast, JUMP with Traveling Jackie, as one of our four outstanding keynote speakers at TBEX North America 2019 in Billings, Montana.
At the age of 17, Jackie entered college studying Spanish, and spent a year studying abroad in Costa Rica. Two years later she traveled to Italy for another year of studies, and quickly discovered that her passion for travel with studies would be a lifelong quest. She has studied abroad on four separate missions, and is fluent in five languages.
In 2013 Jackie quit her last job and founded The Budget-Minded Traveler. Shortly after she launched The Budget-Minded Traveler Podcast, which currently ranks in the top 5% of podcasts worldwide. That podcast was recently rebranded as JUMP with Traveling Jackie, and now has over one million downloads. She considers her most recent online endeavor, Traveling Jackie, her virtual home base – a space to explore adventure travel and personal development. Through Traveling Jackie, she also leads mentorship programs, group trips, and now women’s retreats — sometimes in luxury!
Jackie has always been a serial nomad and entrepreneur, having traveled internationally for 16 years to over 50 countries, yet her favorite place to call home is in the beautiful mountains of Montana. Her keynote address at TBEX North America 2019 in Billings will center around leadership and what it looks like to assume the responsibilities that accompany the positions we create for ourselves as online influencers, in the arenas of expectations, conversations, responsible travel, and more.
