About Jackie

Pic-AboutI’m Jackie, and I live in the beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee area.

My husband, Mark, and I have two wonderful sons who had the audacity to grow up, leave home, and pursue their dreams.

Fortunately, we have Sam, our Golden Retriever, who is constantly by our side and ready to join us on our next adventure.

My recipe for disaster

I was blessed to be raised by a wonderful Southern cook. We Southerners show our love by cooking your favorite foods, and in my case, that usually meant dessert!

Sugar and refined carbs found their way into every meal, especially breakfast. My buttermilk biscuits with chocolate syrup were always a big hit among my family and friends!

But my favorite foods weren’t showing me the love. Little did I know that they were the cause of years of mood and energy swings, weight gain, and yo-yo dieting.

With a family history of cancer, heart disease, and high blood pressure, I knew I had to make the right lifestyle choices in order to live a long and healthy life.

I followed the conventional diet rules by counting calories, avoiding fats, and increasing my cardio, but I couldn’t get the strong and healthy body I wanted, and I was constantly trying to lose those extra pounds.

It’s never too late for a lifestyle makeover

Finally, I had a breakthrough! I found the Institute for Integrative Nutrition where I trained to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach. I became my own client and developed a new relationship with food. I learned to embrace healthy fats, avoid sugar and processed foods, and add in lots and lots of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Finally, I feel FREE and love my new life!

The next chapter is going to be amazing

Now, I am on a mission to show the love, not by baking your favorite dessert, but by helping you live a healthier, happier, and longer life.

I would love to guide you in making over your food and your lifestyle so you can feel more energized, lighter, and ready to take on the next chapter of your life.
