Sean Toomey & Jacqueline Toomey
IT ALL STARTED WHEN...
...my Denver Firefighter husband began using my proven sleep techniques to recover after busy nights. After seeing a drastic improvement in all of his vitals, and noticeable spike in his overall wellness and energy levels, we decided it was important to share these techniques with a larger audience of first responders. We incorporated these techniques and my knowledge from the 10 plus years of working in the health and wellness field and rolled it into what is now called The First Responder Sleep Recovery Program.
ABOUT FOUNDER: JACQUELINE'S STORY
After many years practicing yoga and living a life of wellness, Jacqueline developed a new perspective on what it means to be alive and well after being nearly killed by a drunk driver days after Christmas in 2005. Through the humbling healing of a traumatic brain injury and painful spinal cord injury, Jacqueline became enveloped in the spirit of sharing the healing capacity of yoga and other forms of wellness with the world!
Jacqueline holds multiple Yoga Alliance certifications. She has her BA from Regis University, completed masters-level coursework in Education at Metropolitan State University and trained in Nutrition Therapy. Jacqueline has been sharing yoga and wellness with the world since teaching her first class in 2004.
Jacqueline currently lives with her firefighter husband and their rescue dog in beautiful Colorado.
