Hi – I am Dr Jacqui, and I am an Entrepreneur and a Functional Medicine Expert with a passion for helping you survive and thrive as a top performer.
I know about stress. After 20 years of practicing functional medicine as a Naturopathic Doctor, not only have I witnessed and successfully treated the chronic effects of stress, but I have personally lived it.
I know the heart pounding mind racing feeling of waking up in the morning or the middle of the night not knowing how I’m going to make it through another day. I know the gut wrenching fear of failure and freaking out about money. I know sleepless, relentless long hours of work. Social and family isolation and constant thoughts of the business. I have dealt with personal health scares and devastating loss.
There have been so many times that I’ve wanted to give up. To say Screw It. To just crawl into a ball and give up. I’ve been so close and felt so desperate and sad and alone.
And honestly, the only thing that has kept me from going too low is this deep sense of knowing that if I went down, I would likely not make it back up.
In my practice, there are literally thousands of times where I have thought to myself “If this person had only found me a year ago, this could all have been prevented or minimized”.
I would say working in the field of Functional and Preventative medicine has probably personally saved me during my own dark and desperate times. When I could only do the bare minimum to keep holding on, it was probably those few fundamental things that I did that kept me afloat physically and mentally. And it’s these techniques and tools that I see making a huge difference in the clients and patients I have worked with for over 15 years.
More important than my own personal journey of riding the entrepreneurial roller coaster is the deep passion and purpose I feel for coaching others to reach their true potential. I am so passionate about helping to keep people like me and you – Entrepreneurs, professionals, high performers, and lets fact it – all type A personalities –functioning and performing at your peak potential.
OH, and did I mention I’m also passionate about this?
Honestly, some days its just surviving, and other days, its thriving. Some days we feel in the flow where everything goes our way. And other days it’s a shit show. My passion is in creating resiliency to weather the shit shows. High performers want to kick ass in every area of their lives. To do this, we need resilient bodies and resilient minds.
Not only can I coach you on how to stay at the top of your game physically and mentally, but I can recognize the early signs that you might be headed down a path of extreme fatigue, depletion or even a physical or mental crash.
My coaching and mentorship will provide you with the framework and the customized recommendations on how to make small, sustainable and highly effective upgrades to your physical and mental health that will result in better sleep, moods, digestion, hormone balance and overall happier brains. This is the key to not just surviving as an Entrepreneur or professional, but thriving. It has been said that the person with their health has a thousand wishes. The person without their health only has one. Health creates wealth. When you have great energy and feel awesome physically and mentally, you can create wealth and prosperity in your businesses, your relationships and the world around you. Helping you to achieve this is ultimately is what I’m passionate about.
