Jacquelyn has often been referred to as the “pioneer” of the national and international HSP Movement since co-founding the HSP Gathering Retreats in 2001 with Dr. Elaine Aron.  In reality, it is the highly revered, Dr. Elaine Aron, who is the true pioneer in this movement. Her ground breaking work has truly changed the lives of milions of HSPs through the publication of her six books, which havc been printed in 14 different languages .  I will, like many others, be eternally grateful to her.

Jacquelyn, a Licensed Professional Counselor, is an HSP, High Sensation Seeking Extravert.  Although she grew up financially impoversished by today’s standards, she was fortunate to have an incredibly strong, secure and loving attachment to her primary caregiver – her Mother.    She was always given the gift of being seen, appreciated and loved for being sensitive.  This gift provided Jacquelyn with a strong spiritual life, and allowed her to honor, though not always manifest, the many visions she often received growing up.  As an adult , her life’s purpose revealed itself to be a “Social Justice Activist” ~ changing the lives of many on her path.  In 1983, she founded The Mother’s Center – a research, service and advocacy center for primary caregivers and their families.  This center is now The Family Resource Center of LaPlata County, Durango, Colorado.

The HSP Gathering Retreats have reached hundreds of HSPs since 2001.  HSP Gatherings have been held in the United Kingdom (2006, 2009, 2011); British Columbia, Canada (2005, 2010); North Carolina (2009, 2012); Colorado (2007, 2009 and 2013, 2016); and numerous retreats on both the East and West Coasts of the U.S.   See the history here:
