Emboldened | Spirited | Kindhearted
Julie Banks—a member of our operations team originally from South Georgia—has been following her restless spirit’s need for adventure to all corners of the earth. “I’ve lived a million lives,” is how she describes herself. From farming rare and medicinal herbs in the hills of Appalachia to assisting in the research of allusive giant river otters in the Rupununi river. As an avid photographer, she always has to see the world through as many lenses as possible.
She currently lives in Bozeman, Montana where she spends her downtime packing mules into wilderness areas and learning to cross-country ski with her dogs. Julie’s unique experiences, passion for conservation, and attention to detail make her an asset to the Extraordinary Journeys team.
Her future adventure plans include whale watching at Walvis Bay, snorkeling in the Red Sea, rock climbing in Southern Utah, rafting the Colorado River, and going on a throughout food and wine tour of Mendoza.
