Jackie is an expert at helping others: get unstuck, rise above their currently realities, and develop strategies that get desired results. She often says, "When people resolve to evolve, life will take on a new meaning and direction for them." She now understands the art and sciences of success because there was time when she was stuck and stagnant. For years she lived with a quiet discontentment because she felt so disconnected from her purpose and goals. She struggled in most areas of her life and could not figure out why she was not getting desired outcomes. She was trying to cope with many difficulties at the same time:
A job that she hated
Relationship ups and downs and
Grieving the loss of a sister who died at at age 22
A journey of desperation led to spiritual awakening and coaching. This season also led her to the resources, people, and guidance that were needed to radically change her life. That season was the catalyst for her book, "Desperate for Change" which explains the strategies and wisdom that aided in her personal evolution and success. Jackie is known for her ability to show you “how” to transform your life. There are many teachers that tell you what to do; she shows you “how” to do it.
