Please join us for a conversation with our speaker Jackie Martin, CEO of Love Your Closet, by Jackie. She will discuss bringing joy into our closets to bring more joy into our lives. 

About our Speaker:

Jackie has spent years working with women and teenage girls to accept their bodies and bring more joy into their lives. She helped create and facilitate women’s empowerment high ropes courses for at risk teenage girls in 2005. That was where she first recognized that she wanted to help women of all different ages and backgrounds to develop a stronger, deeper relationship with themselves, and their bodies.

Jackie currently facilitates workshops on body image, dressing for your body type, and cultivating more joy in our lives, but using our closets. She also enjoys working with individuals to empower them to dress up the body parts they like, encourage them to wear what makes them feel good, and to help create new outfits with what they already have in their closet to bring out the emotions they want to have more of in their life. Jackie is an advocate for women’s joy and shows up in a variety of ways to help make profound differences in the way we see ourselves, so we can show up more in the way we choose to be.
