More about Jacqualine

 What is one thing you would want patients to know about you?

My patients can tell me anything—no judgment here! I’m passionate about creating a supportive environment where patients feel comfortable being vulnerable, sharing their concerns, and celebrating their success.

How do you go about making your treatment plans for FORM patients?

Everyone has unique needs and goals, and my job is to support, encourage, and educate them on their journey. I take the time to understand each patient’s current habits, challenges, and priorities. We’ll then work together to create a customized nutrition plan that fits into their daily routine and empowers them to make sustainable changes.

Why do you love working with FORM patients?

I love working closely with patients and gaining insight into their lives! Every patient encounter teaches me something new about my patients and my role in their journey. Changing habits and behavior can be difficult, and I feel privileged to help patients access new information and implement actionable steps in their lives in meaningful ways.
