Hello! Hey I’m Jacq, or Jacqueline as my parents would prefer. Introducing myself is way overdue, but I think that says a lot about me. I’d prefer to be behind the scenes working away rather than presenting my ideas, words or creations (even my about page). Like most, right? But, modeling for other brands and peoples’ ideas––I’m all in, and I’ll have a veggie sandwich for lunch then an extra hot americano with room, please!
Found Natural Goods is my brainchild and I’m so happy I took the leap to bring her to life six months ago via a brick-and-mortar downtown Bend, Oregon. She actually started three years ago when I had many other irons in the fire.
A Few Fun Facts:
I’ve alway been an entrepreneur at heart. When I was a kid I had many ways of making cash including lemonade stands, pet sitting, trying to sell family heirlooms at their garage sales, mowing lawns, mucking horse stalls, cleaning houses, and selling my hemp necklaces and macramé projects at Ponderfusion downtown Bend.
Today, I prefer to work solo in quiet spaces with good light, and lots of snacks.
Being sun-kissed, warm and in a bikini is my favorite status.
I love food––cooking food, shopping for food, talking about food, and how it brings people together at least three times a day. My ideal breakfast is an egg-in-a-hole, still runny and in the center of a sourdough slice with lots of salt and pepper. An avocado side with sour cream in the center and hot sauce makes for an extra good morning.
I define success as lifting others up while taking good care of my people and myself. I chose this headshot because Natalie Puls was the first to photograph all my Found Natural Goods and myself back in 2016. And, because the more I see this top photo the more it makes me want to yawn.
Cheers the the year ahead,
