Why We Founded Purposeful Nomad

Purposeful Nomad was created to inspire, challenge and bring together women from around the globe.

We believe women can and will positively change this world if given the opportunity to safely and securely travel, to share ideas and learn with each other.

The idea was born from the many personal journeys of our founders, Caitlin Murray and Jessica Scranton. 

They saw a need for high quality, in-depth programs that went beyond the tourist facade, deep into communities and secret corners of the world. They wanted to build travel for women focused on active, ethical exchanges and adventurous but safe experiences. 

Every journey is painstakingly planned. We personally meet with local community leaders, establish relationships and design magical, authentic and adventurous trips.

Each activity is researched and tried before inclusion in any itinerary. Every trip is built with integrity and all communities are properly explored and listened to before partnering in activities and exchanges.

We also love offering a diversity of experiences on any given journey- adventure, relaxation, and community engagement.

Our original trips are an amazing and uncommon blend of true adventure, deep self-care and socially responsible service. There is also skill-building and skill-sharing, customizable itineraries, togetherness and solo-time. We know this approach to travel is something special. 

We wanted to create a platform for women to truly engage, and out-do themselves beyond the typical travel industry tour. We're creating a community-driven, travel revolution! We hope you'll join us!
