Jacke has a vibrant personality that extends through the audio and you can feel her energy and passion when listening to her interview guests or go into some of her experiences as well. Definitely a good listen that is informative and glad I stumbled upon it!

Valkk ,

Jackie was reading my mind!

I love that feeling when I'm listening to a podcast and the person is describing what I've been feeling in words I didn't even have for it yet. That was me listening to Jackie's episode on Alignment Activites... loved it!! The image of holding the latte is perfect because it really feels like you're sitting down and having coffee with her. Keep up the good work!

Healthy Beach Girl ,

Inspiring and Empowering.

I love how Jackie hosts a platform to share the inspiratioanl stories of these women. She is a great interviewer and is able to ask questions in a way that helps the listener to relate.
