As soon as Jacque was old enough she began assisting her mother, a licensed Trauma Therapist on trips to India where she was surrounded by healers from various lineages. On these trips to South India following the devastation of the 2004 Tsunami, she began to step further into her purpose of learning how to help others. She spent a lot of time supporting the trauma teams as a photographer and assistant, often finding herself taking the workshops with the locals and hanging out in the outdoor kitchens. Realising the work is never done, each time she would return to India with a new team under the guidance of her mom, her connections there deepened.
