10:45 AM - 12:00 PMSelf Care for Clinicians & Early Childhood Practitioners

Hi there, I am Jackie de Crinis. I am a Life Coach who is passionate about teaching individuals how to reduce their stress and feel happier in their lives. My specialty is helping over-achiever perfectionists get out of their own way, so that they can be more productive and feel less anxious. I know a little bit about stress and perfectionism because I spent 30 years in the television business before I became a Life Coach. I was the former Head of Original Programming for the USA network, where I developed a large slate of hit series including: Monk, Psych, Burn Notice, Covert Affairs, White Collar, Suits, Mr. Robot, and Chrisley Knows Best. Prior to working at USA, I worked for ABC, 20th Century Fox, and Sony TV, where I supervised dozens of other award-winning  series. While managing my career in television, I was also raising three children. My life was fueled by adrenaline, caffeine, sugar, anxiety, and hyper-vigilance. I was so busy surviving my life that I never had time to enjoy my life. I made the conscious decision to find a different path both personally and professionally. Now I help other people learn to manage their stress by teaching them healthy habits and mindset tools to feel better.
