Ten years ago, Jackie decided to fuel her passion for nutrition and healthy living by becoming a Dietitian, committing to making the world a better place through helping people lead healthier lives. She believed that corporate wellness allowed her the opportunity to influence more lives in a positive way. One of Jackie’s most memorable success stories was a client with slightly high biometric numbers, who was slightly overweight. She shared “my family did not notice when we switched to lower fat milk. They did not complain about the whole wheat bread. My friends are grateful that I started a walking group.” This client lost weight, lowered her numbers, and improved her own health and those around her.
One of Jackie’s favorite mantras is: “Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish them.”
