While working at NATO's Headquarters in Kabul as a military journalist, Jackie started training the first Afghan women to swim, bike, and run through her nonprofit She Can Tri. In 2020, they made history as one of their athletes became the first Afghan woman to finish an IRONMAN event. Their top two athletes went on to earn scholarships to study in the United States. To launch She Can Tri, Jackie also took on her own challenge, and became the first woman in the world to complete six IRONMAN triathlons on six continents within one year. She is also the founder of OneJanuary, an ethical activewear company based in Austin, Texas that makes sustainable apparel from recycled plastics for the purpose of supporting global sport and leadership opportunities for women impacted by war and poverty.
