Work With Me

I produce multi-media content and create in-person experiences for my audience. I am looking to partner with brands and destinations for the following:

“Jackie was a pleasure to work with on our first ever #OMGBChallenge trip, delivering unique content that her audience was highly engaged with. She truly flew the flag for Britain during her visit, even spending an entire day with a local “guide” she met on the tube!” – D. Gonzalez, Visit Britain

“We love having Jackie as part of our team. She truly lives the adventurous life and it’s great to have Carve clothing portrayed as such. Jackie has the ability to display how our products work in different situations. Her following is growing and we are seeing a direct reflection of that.” – J. Hinton, Carve Designs

“Jackie was great to work with and made the process of sponsoring her podcast easy and straight forward. Sponsoring the podcast was great exposure for TripCreator.” – Katie Hammel, [Formerly] Trip Creator

“Working with Jackie was an absolute pleasure! Creative and professional, Jackie was very easy to work with and presented the Saguenay – Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec with enthusiasm and skill. Her energy and passion for travel comes through clearly in both her writing and podcast. This goes a long way to add credibility and interest in our destination for her audience and our target market.” – Nancy Donnelly, Tourisme Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean

“It’s been a pleasure to work with Jackie, she handles everything very professionally.” – H. Ahvenainen, Busabout
