Jacqueline is an Arizona native, married to her high school sweetheart, and mama to a sweet, almost two year old girl. As a Prenatal and Mommy & Me Yoga instructor at Modern Milk, she is passionate about making health and fitness accessible to every mom. Don't let the "healthy" part fool you though, as she's never one to turn down dessert (preferably chocolate!). She enjoys reading, family hikes, extra large iced green teas (no sugar and light on the ice!), and is a big believer in the power of positive thinking.
