Jacquie draws on a lifetime of challenging and rewarding experiences – a lifetime of pushing the envelope, taking big risks and challenging the status quo. She’s been married a few times, immigrated twice, been fat, slim, broke, rich, and followed her gut to a life of excitement, adventure, passion and purpose.
As a speaker, Jacquie’s quickly becoming one of the world’s most sought after voices for women who are ready to tap into their full potential and live a thrilling life of courage, confidence, and clarity. Her signature keynote Break the Rules for a Kick Ass Life: The Normalphobe’s Guide to Scandalous Success is being touted as THE manifesto for the 21st century woman.

As an author, Jacquie’s Little Rule Book series is quickly becoming THE go-to resource for women who are ready to live the life of their dreams. My Fat Little Rule Book is a fun but hugely effective take on diet and exercise; My Scandalous Little Rule Book is a definitive guide to risk-taking and embracing uncertainty. Jacquie’s currently writing My Rich Little Rule Book featuring wealth lessons learned from the rich and poor men she’s known.

Jacquie was born in rural South Africa, immigrated to Canada alone in 1992, and now resides in Rancho Mirage, California. She is passionate about empowering women and changing the way girls are raised. She loves animals, horse riding, dinner parties, chocolate, Scotch, and storytelling.
