About Me



Hey girl! I’m Jackie and I’m so happy you stopped by! Welcome to my little corner of the internet!

I’m 28 years old, married to a fourth-year medical student (soon to be resident, BLESS because it’s been a long journey), mama to two rescue pets (a pup and kitty), and Virginia homebody! I’m currently a high school biology teacher, but I’m training to become a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, and I hope to one day own my own health coaching practice focusing on women’s health!

I have a passion for helping other girls live a healthier and happier life. I share health and wellness ideas to educate and empower other women about their health. On this blog you’ll find posts about plant-based recipes, weekly meal plans, nutrition tips and tricks, self-care, fitness, and ways to detoxify your home through #thehealthyhomechallenge. You’ll also find posts about my experience being a wife to a medical student and, more recently, our fertility journey after I was diagnosed with PCOS in September 2019 (read more about my diagnosis and our fertility journey HERE).

Thank you for stopping by! Please connect with me on social media and say hey! I get the most joy out of blogging by connecting with my readers! I hope by visiting my blog today, you are encouraged and empowered to make small changes to live a healthier and happier life!
