How often do you feel like you’re running from one thing to the next with NO direction? How many times have you said, “I’ll do that tomorrow” and then feel guilty for not conquering your goals? You have a CHOICE to live the life you want. You can get past the things that are holding you back! This will be an interactive experience that centers around mindset, spirituality and your overall well-being. We will go over practical tools to RESET your life – professionally, personally and spiritually – so you can conquer this year!

Remember: Change is good when you surrender + embrace it!

In the beginning of her career, Jaclyn worked with Ernst & Young as an auditor and transitioned into the hospitality industry gaining hands-on experience running a high-end winery. As a recovering workaholic, she never took any time for herself, that is, until she started to get sick with Lyme. Having struggled with a debilitating Lyme disease misdiagnosis, she learned first hand that causes like stress, toxic relationships, lack of self-care and a lack of balance are often ignored. In the midst of her journey, Jaclyn began to lose everything – mentally and physically compromised, she struggled to get through everyday life. She began to live by the motto, “Wake. Pray. Conquer!”, which has helped her to overcome that adversity and now, she leads a happy, healthy and productive life – financially, professionally & spiritually. Her mission is to help you do the same!

The Wellness Connection

Join us for some simple and easy to use tips to keep you sane during this time of uncertainty. Living a life without distraction can offer gifts you could never imagine. Stillness is often the pathway to your true intentions, so how can you use this time wisely…uninterrupted. Listen to what your body wants for you and start on the path that has been there for you all along. Social distancing has given us the gift of being present – fully present, not only with ourselves, but with those who matter the most to us. What will you say when this is all over, and how can you influence a positive outcome?

After devastatingly losing her husband in 2002 and dealing with profound grief, Susan McCormick was inspired to make a career change into counseling. Years later, her son was diagnosed with ADHD and sensory processing disorder. Susan realized that his many care -givers were often providing conflicting advice, which interfered with his overall development. Susan educated herself on techniques that integrated the mind and body, and her son started to show tremendous progress. This sparked Susan’s dream to create The Wellness Connection, a model for healing centers of the future, bringing clients together with their providers in a collaborative partnership to optimize overall health and well-being.
