Hello Trailblazhers, you are in for a treat! In episode ten of the Trailblazher Podcast, we are interviewing Jackie Barkhouse about her incredible, beautiful, and transformative article in our Winter 2023 Issue Number 13.  

Jackie Barkhouse is a saltwater soul. She lives on the eastern shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, overlooking the magnificent 100 Wild Islands. She's married to Stephen and together, they have two grown children and a baby grandson. Her life and experiences have taken many twists and turns over the years, but it is her love of nature that has informed her the most. Jackie has returned to a simple life, in a simple place, amidst the wild beauty of woodland and sea, where she creates and writes.

And in this interview, we went everywhere. It twisted and turned as Jackie shared her experience working in the corporate world. Jackie explains that that had been her goal her whole life but between the stress and compounding pressure, she experienced extreme burnout, both physically and mentally as her body just said no, no more.

This story is about her journey back to reinventing and healing herself. Some key topics that we cover with Jackie in this episode are:

  • Whether she feels that her career was a success
  • How she lives now in the day-to-day and in the present moment 
  • What she finds joy in and where
  • Plus so much more! 

You are also going to want to tune into this because, at the end of the episode, we reveal to her that she is on the cover of our winter issue. So you get to hear her live reaction to being on the cover - grab the Kleenex because it's a good one, you don’t want to miss it!
