Hi, I'm Jackie!
I'm a life coach for creative entrepreneurs and impact-driven creatives. I support visionaries as they create thoughtful work and build innovative brands with clarity and confidence, while also focusing on having fulfilling personal lives. I believe people to be multi-faceted, multi-talented, and complex, and I help people to embrace full expressions of themselves.
Most of my experience in the last decade has been working as a graphic designer, where I strategized, art directed, and designed for more than 50 brands, including The Advertising Council, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Poppin, and Moët Hennessy. After experiencing burnout and navigating my way through difficult personal transitions, I built and ran Social Tea House, a program for social entrepreneurs centered around tea and conversations on pain points in life and work, in various co-working spaces. In 2020, I founded a community for creatives to reimagine and their work and lives through the lens of coaching called The Reimaginary. I have also hosted monthly “Being Asian American” gatherings for Asian Americans to talk about race and our personal experiences.
These days, alongside my coaching work, I work in many different disciplines straddling both art and design. Whether I'm designing and building furniture using Japanese handtool methods or in my studio sculpting clay for hours, my heart is at its fullest when I'm creating. I constantly strive for being in flow and creation and it is a state I help others to get to too in their lives.
I'm a native New Yorker and I'm always dreaming up ways to positively impact this vibrant city.
