Growing up in the performing arts, Jakki sang, danced and entertained audiences in leading roles such as Anna in the King and I, Reno Sweeney in Anything Goes, and a Shark girl in West Side Story. She went on to major in dance in college where she worked with prominent choreographers and found her own niche in choreography.  A back injury led her to stop pursuing dance and landed her in the field of massage therapy where she discovered a passion to teach others the power of healing with the hands.


Many years later, after owning and operating her own wellness spa, Jakki wrote her book Follow the Signs, wrote dozens of songs, became a Life Coach, developed an aromatherapy line and got herself out of an abusive marriage. She has, after working with thousands of clients, discovered that the source of all discomforts is ultimately a lack of self-love. She has since committed herself to teaching the truth about love, helping others unlock their personal power and guiding them through difficult times through song, dance, qi gong, healing bodywork, powerful aroma essences, empowering workshops and the uplifting Journey into Joy Experience. 

Message from Jakki:

"I CAN HELP YOU HEAL YOUR HEARTACHE. As part of my involvement with your Journey Into Joy, I will help you use your body as a tool- to understand its signals to get deeper in touch with your emotions and your intuition. I will help you unlock the reasons for your suffering and help you find the solution to it. I will help you acknowledge the source of your joy and expand that to get more clarity on what you truly want. I will also coach you on how to show yourself more love so you don’t look to others to make you feel whole. "

"Jakki is amazing! She is so intuitive and incredibly helpful in ways that only a true friend can be. She has helped me to manifest the best job situation. Can't wait to see what comes next. Was barely treading water before, now I feel like I'm thriving!"  Elisabeth, MD​
