I have nothing but good things to say about Jackie. I can tell that she genuinely cares about her athletes and is passionate about helping them reach their goals. She is also super easy going and flexible with whatever comes up, even if it includes my own indecision about what race to do. If I have any questions or concerns about my training plan or any niggles that come up during the week she is always responsive and helpful. Jackie is also a super human because she had a baby and still checked in with me on my training plan for the week like it was no big deal. I feel lucky to have Jackie coaching me and wish I would’ve started working with her sooner.

Jackie has been amazing, starting with my personal history and covering past performance, athletic background, medical issues, injuries, preferences, and short and long term goals and then developing a training plan that was updated weekly based on my feedback and progress. I went from couch to half marathon and hit my A goal and felt more comfortable and prepared than I had in any past running race. Jackie strikes a perfect balance of structure and flexibility and I am excited to keep moving forward under her guidance!

Working with Jackie has been great! She’s so supportive and responsive and I felt really ready for my race. She was flexible around my schedule and other activities I do which was so appreciated!!
Jackie is an amazing coach. This training was a lot different for me since I just had a baby. I have never trained post partum before. Jackie was with me the entire way. The hardest part for me was adjusting my training as abdominal pain was happening without feeling like a failure. However, She was gentle and stern to ensure that I healed and was able to complete my training. She adjusted my train plan based upon my body needs on a weekly basis. As she did this she also adjusted my state of mind for training. I now view training as an act of body respect. I have accomplished my goals and stayed healthy, I could not have done it without Jackie.

I started training with Jackie after moving to a new state, starting a new job and trying to get a routine with running again. I’ve had my ups and downs with running but what I truly love about Jackie is how personable, flexible and always understanding she is. If I don’t hit my goals (sometimes I get close and give up), she truly doesn’t get upset or frustrated… she cheers me on for my effort and we adjust! She is very responsive and always friendly to chat about your week! I love how flexible she makes everything but still motivates me to do my best. She takes my feelings into consideration and there’s nothing more I could ask for! She is very knowledgeable and I always trust her guidance. She’s more confident in my abilities than I am but sometimes we just need a little push ???? thank you for being you, coach Jackie!

I worked with Jackie to train for my second marathon, and I am so happy I did. She built a cohesive plan that gave me the structure I needed, while offering me flexibility based on my schedule and the way my body was feeling each week. She communicated consistently, adjusted my plan when necessary, and provided me with positive reinforcement throughout the process. Working with her has given me a lot more confidence in my abilities as a runner!
