Jackie comes from a long ancestral line of avid ice cream lovers who happen to run marathons for fun. Jackie wanted to be two different people growing up: Mia Hamm and Julia Child. You can find her at coffee shops having stimulating conversations with friends or the local farmer's market searching for fresh produce for a tasty homemade dinner. Nothing makes her happier than inspiring others with a passion for nutrition. She firmly believes that you are what you eat, so why not be fun and wholesome? Be prepared for her to take pictures of her food before she eats it, look at nutrition labels before she buys it, and pray before she enjoys it.
Jackie graduated from Texas A&M University in May 2017 with a BS in Nutritional Sciences. She is currently earning her MS in Nutrition at Texas Woman's University in Houston, Texas. She is also completing her dietetic internship at Michael E. DeBakey Veteran Affairs Medical Center to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN).
