In addition to working as an actress and singer, Jackie hosts The Evolution Podclub podcast in which she discusses a new approach to life. One based in love as opposed to fear. She discovered she was a channel after working with Gary Temple Bodley, who channels The Teachings of Joshua, and this podcast is a weekly discussion that she leads about this new approach as a creator and not a victim.
She answers questions about how this empowering perspective applies to all aspects of everyone’s personal and professional lives, including her own. She guides others into getting into alignment so that they too can access or “channel” their inner guides at any time day or night. The podcast also includes a “One on One” series where she interviews others about how they implement similar perspectives into their own lives.
Jackie met her husband Jason Winer (Director/Producer) in 2012 and lives with him and their two beautiful children, Pearl and Sage.
