About Jackie

If you're trying to conceive (TTC), I want to help you do everything you can nutritionally to boost fertility. If you’re someone who’s experienced irregular or missing periods due to imbalances in physical activity, stress and eating patterns, I want to help you find balance and get your period back. Mamas-to-be, I
want to be your go-to for all your pregnancy-related nutrition questions.  Marathon runners, I want to help you eat to run faster, recover more quickly, and avoid injuries. 

I’m a registered dietitian, writer, marathon runner, new mom, and ice cream connoisseur, and I help people ditch diets and find balance through intuitive eating and a non-diet approach. I specialize in working with athletes and women.

In the past I struggled with my own eating issues, which culminated in a diagnosis of female athlete triad – I had an under-fueled, highly active body and an overly stressed mind, and had trouble getting pregnant. Since my own recovery, I have dedicated my practice to helping people achieve nutritional balance, not perfection.
