Jacqui’s enthusiasm for travel, wellbeing, and human connection have led her to kitchens throughout the U.S., South America, and Asia. She’s gathered experiences and knowledge by spending time with home cooks, farmers, and professional chefs in these places. In 2016, she graduated from NTI’s Natural Food Chef program and continued to study nutrition science, obtaining her NTMC in the summer of 2020. She believes that cooking is one of the most empowering skills we can all gain: she teaches culinary lessons to people looking to support their health and cooks for families throughout Denver and Boulder. Exposing children to whole foods at an early age is one of her greatest passions.
