Many years ago, Jackie began studying the Enneagram to learn more about herself and her family. This quickly turned into an obsession that she now shares with teams and organizations committed to good communication and conflict resolution, as well as those simply desiring deeper connection with themselves and those they love. As a certified Enneagram coach and experiential specialist, she is a featured speaker at conferences and events where she unpacks the Enneagram as a tool to reveal behavioral patterns and bring clarity and understanding to people’s lives. Her goal is to help people build stronger relational foundations so they might overcome feeling overwhelmed, confused, and lost in both their personal and vocational lives. She believes Enneagram awareness can help people facilitate empathy and compassion for others, fostering deeper connections inside of meaningful relationships. She believes it is this emotional connection that holds the key to breakthrough in people’s lives. Jackie lives in Franklin, Tennessee, with her husband, Stephen, and their four children.

Healthy Love and Relationships
As humans, we’re all wired for connection, but unfortunately, many of us did not get our most basic emotional needs met in our early development. When we don’t get our emotional needs met, we start to look to other relationships to fulfill those needs. This affects our self-worth and self-esteem, resulting in harmful and hurtful relationship patterns in adulthood.
We repeat what we don’t repair, so we’ll continue to live out the same scenarios and situations we experienced growing up until we find the space and guidance we need to explore what’s behind these unhealthy patterns.
This revolutionary six-day experience will help you address the core wounds that drive self-sabotaging behaviors and the need for approval that continues to disrupt your relationships.
