Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
MAED, B.S. Biological Sciences
I’m Jackie, a fellow mama and an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I am passionate about helping other moms learn to prioritize their health and make sustainable lifestyle changes to achieve their personal health goals.
I am a new mama to a little guy who will be turning one year old this winter. My husband and I relocated to the Hershey, Pennsylvania area last year.
In addition to my Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching training, my background is focused in science. I earned by MAED and B.S. in Biological Sciences from Virginia Tech. My sweet spot is understanding the science behind nutrition and how it impacts my clients’ unique metabolism. I pride myself on staying in the loop about the most recent nutritional research, and then applying this knowledge to my clients’ health goals.
My Health + Weight Loss Journey
I have always had an interest in nutrition, however my passion truly took off after college. During college, I did not make wise decisions to take care of my body, and therefore had gained close to 35 pounds. The more critical concern was that I had also gained negative body image and low self confidence which was impacting other areas of my life.
I took control of the situation, and started educating myself on nutrition, fitness, and overall wellness to change the trajectory of my life. I lost the weight, but more importantly I gained confidence in myself and fell in love with me again! I have continued my passion in nutrition by completing the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
This past year while pregnant, I continued to lean on my passion for nutrition to fuel myself (and growing baby). In this postpartum season, I have continued to my nourish my body and have been dedicated to making time for myself through nutrition and movement. My body is stronger than ever, and I am confident in my skin again. This process has taken dedication, hard work, and a lot of grace for myself – and this is exactly what I want for you too! I want you to fall in love with yourself again and be confident in your skin!
My Passion for Helping Other Moms
I genuinely feel like mamas stick together! I love being able to use my passion for nutrition and wellness to help a fellow mom reach her health goals and overcome doubts and frustrations she may be experiencing.
