A Functional Wellness Practice

Helping you restore hope and health.

"Your health, Your future"

Food & Excercise

is fundamental to all good health. Our foods are too often lacking in real nutrition the body can use to rebuild and function optimally. 

Nutrient Testing & Supplementation for Wellness

With our lack of real food, many of us know that we need some kind of nutritional help.

Reclaiming our own Environment

Environmental exposures stress our bodies often forcing it to compensate in ways that are unhealthy; keeping us from healing or functioning at our peak.

What others have said about working with Jackie

Let me just start by saying how amazing Jackie is! I came to her about 6 months ago with severe gut issues, extreme fatigue, poor immune system, hormonal issues you name it.. I had been dealing with these issues for about a year, getting told I had nothing wrong with me for some time. I finally decided to go with a more holistic approach and that is how I found Jackie. After about 6 months of hard work and trusting the process all of my symptoms disappeared and I feel healthier then ever! Jackie has helped me get back my health and then some and I am so grateful for her

Madison Smith

“Jackie is amazing. She is so knowledgeable and so passionate about her work, and about helping people feel better!

When I started seeing Jackie, my health was terrible, I was very weak, I was barley eating and under weight. Jackie sat and talked with me and shared her knowledge, and once we had a plan set for me we went with that and months later I started to eat, my health was better, I gained some good weight! I feel so much better from what I was a year ago, I’m so glad Jackie was there to help me before I needed a feeding tube! She was and is always checking in on me, and my health! Super grateful for her.”

Elizabeth Moran

“I went for an initial consultation with Jackie just to see if I there was anything I could do to improve my overall health. I didn’t necessarily think I was unhealthy, but I knew I could feel better. Jackie did a thorough review of my medical history and lifestyle and came up with a comprehensive plan to boost my health. Here I am months later, feeling better than I ever expected I could! I genuinely did not know that I was feeling bad or tired beforehand and I was shocked when I noticed the drastic improvements in my energy levels, range/duration of movement, and mood. I have Jackie to thank for working alongside me to improve my lifestyle and daily habits!”
