She earned her Bachelor’s in Community Health Education from the University of WI – La Crosse where she lettered 4 years in basketball and was recognized as a scholar athlete in both high school and college.
Over 15 years ago, she transitioned from being a wellness professional to launching her business, Whole Life Visions, as an ontological life and business coach and wellness speaker.
Today, she is the contributing author to three books and is well-known and sought after for her whole life approach and natural ability to evoke wisdom and vision.

She shares this adventure with her husband, a chiropractor, and their three children. In their spare moments, they enjoy road bike riding, boating, and an occasional triathlon.
As a coach, Jackie empowers people to learn who they are, overcome fears, and create the mindset to take action. She has extensive experience in wellness and integrates a mind-body-spirit approach with her clients who include young adults experiencing quarter life crisis, those wanting to explore starting a business or career change, and those wanting to gain true confidence in relationships.
She has been inspired to become a Mental Toughness Trainer for young athletes and their parents to build their true confidence in sports and life. She has launched Confident Sports Girls.
