Jetty felt the constant hum of something more. From a young age in the Netherlands Jetty began to understand the weight of labels: “dirty farm girl,” “not smart enough,” “too outspoken.”

With these labels she learned life was meant to be a struggle: for attention, for love, for acceptance. Without comfort at home, she found it in food, marking the beginning of a twenty year struggle with disordered eating.

It took decades to break free of the shame and exhaustion associated with people pleasing to understand who she was when she wasn’t focused on being palatable for others.

As a speaker, model, and content creator, Jetty now uses her personal stories of invisible illness — bulimia, Lyme Disease, and depression — to help women wake up from a life on autopilot and unapologetically go after their desires. As a former health and wellness coach, she’s known for encouraging self-expression as a means to communicate the depth of who you are and what you stand for.
