UPDATE: When the pandemic hit, Jacqueline was forced to pivot her career. Due to state mandated closures of fitness gyms and other CDC’s public safety regulations, she was unable to operate her business or work in supermarkets. So, Jacqui quickly launched a virtual weight loss coaching practice in order to get back on her feet financially. She now helps busy and stressed mom’s across the country lose weight.
