This past weekend included Valentine’s Day (or for us Valentine’s weekend!) and I took the opportunity to make a new and sexy dessert. My love certainly got to eat it, but this year my valentine was the Cat Skinner Club and I made this Gluten-Free Molten Chocolate Cake with Blueberry Coulis especially for them. This bit of […] read more

Here’s a little known fact about me: I love American football. Back when I lived a life of leisure (yah, right), I used to reserve Sunday’s for all-day watching of the games. I don’t have the time to take full football days anymore but I do still love a good Superbowl party. This year, instead […] read more
“I am lucky to be healthy but I don’t take it for granted. I wanted to become aware of ways I could maintain this good health. Jackie reviewed my food intake, medications, and lifestyle. She then provided me with an excellent protocol listing natural options to improve my eating habits (including some delicious recipes), recommending dietary supplements to support my age requirements, and encouraging my involvement with swimming, weight bearing exercises, and yoga. Jackie continues to demonstrate her wealth of knowledge as she patiently answers my many questions about healthy substitutions for my favorite (not so healthy) foods, the benefits of organic options, the difference between all those sugars and flours, and so much more. With Jackie’s help I hope to live a long, vibrant and healthy life.”
"Jackie's drive and work ethic is real in every aspect of her life. She is an overachiever in the best way possible. Her passion to educate the aerial community and others on how nutrients can help them in their day to day life and their career is beyond beneficial. We're lucky to have such a smart savvy and all around super girl in our community."
"If you have ever experienced your GI system 'out of control' to the point of embarrassment for weeks and months at a time, you can appreciate my frustration and sadness. After numerous medical tests my family doctor was bewildered and at a loss as to how to help me recover. I reached out to Jackie and after a few weeks of working together my symptoms began to disappear and eventually they stopped completely. Jackie didn't simply treat my symptoms but dug deep and dealt with their root causes. I didn't realize how ill I had become until friends started to tell me how poorly I had been looking and how they were worried that something was very wrong with my health. My family doctor has told me to keep on doing whatever I am doing nutritionally as it is working. I am 66 years of age and take no prescription medications, can think more clearly and have regained my health naturally."
