Hi, I’m Jackie. I guess you could call me a bit of a hippie, and a little bit classic rock.
At PeaceAutismandLove.com, I mostly write about my own sensory issues and dealing with sensory issues as a parent. I get it, I’ve been there and I enjoy translating from OT verbiage to mom daily application.
My autism articles are also from experience both inside and outside my home, and how that has changed over the last decade. My son is now a teenager (ASD, SPD, Anxiety) and he reads my articles. I get his approval on everything, especially photos.
I write books! My SENSORY PARENTING books that I wrote with Britt Collins, MS, OTR/L are available in paperback and on kindle (and in both standard Chinese and Mandarin!). SENSORY PARENTING combines OT, Sensory Integration, and parenting in one from both a parent of a child with SPD and a pediatric occupational therapist.
The Waiting Pool is my journey receiving an autism diagnosis in the entertainment industry and not famous. It’s full of humor, because, well, Hollywood is ridiculous and fabulous all in one. And if you’re an autism mom, you’ll probably see yourself in this journey.

Thank you for stopping by. I’m so very happy you are here!
