Jackie: Pregnancy Announcement
Professional Photography by Marisa Kinney



Hey girl! I’m Jackie and I’m so happy you stopped by! Welcome to my little corner of the internet with my health + wellness lifestyle blog!

A little about me…

I’m 28 years old, married to an anesthesia resident, and we are expecting our first MIRACLE baby, due on Christmas Day (read more about our journey with fertility HERE).

I’m currently a science 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 (you can read more about this HERE).

What you’ll find on this blog…

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 healthy recipes, nutrition tips and tricks, self-care, fitness, and ways to detoxify your home through #thehealthyhomechallenge. I also share personal posts about our marriage, and now my journey on maintaining my health while pregnant. In the future,  I hope to include topics on healthy motherhood, as I feel this is an area a lot of women struggle, and I would love to offer resources to help other mamas out!

What message I hope you get from my blog…

I truly believe health is a lifestyle and journey, not a fad diet or something that should be punitive. I’ve spent my entire life on a health journey, and I’m so grateful to have this space to empower other women. Everyone’s health goals and body are unique, and we should celebrate that and lift each other up. I hope this blog gives you ideas and inspiration to put yourself first. You are worth it!

Thanks and let’s be friends…

Thank you for stopping by! Please connect with me on social media (I hang out on Instagram the most) 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!
