A message from Billy and Jacqui:
"First and foremost, we are individuals who have faced our own demons, struggles, and "unfair" life circumstances. We have made poor choices and used unhealthy ways to cope with our hurts. Additionally, we have experienced numerous life transitions, whether wanted or not.
We are persons who have learned many valuable lessons by seeking help from various resources, implementing healthy ways to navigate through difficult situations, holding ourselves accountable for our actions, and developing the ability to adapt to unexpected challenges. As a couple, we utilize all the experiences we have gained to be more productive, present, and prepared for our present and future. We are now better equipped to face real-life struggles that come our way.
We possess a profound empathy for those who are suffering. We have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and an eagerness to explore new ideas and experiences, even in the midst of the ordinary. Our objective is to establish a safe and inviting atmosphere that empowers individuals to uncover their authentic selves on their personal journeys."
The who and why:
Billy and Jacqui are two passionate individuals who decided to pursue their dream of serving others by establishing their business in Ashland, Oregon. The Bayberry Inn Bed & Breakfast caught their attention as the ideal location to continue running the beloved B&B. They envisioned hosting their family gatherings, including their eight children, their kids' partners, and their grandchildren, on special occasions at this beautiful place. Additionally, they planned to use the facility to run their other business venture, Oregon Wellness Retreat, which offers all-inclusive trips designed to provide self-care and relationship nourishment.
They strive to source everything locally for their businesses, with the aim of doing their part in helping the charming city of Ashland thrive and continue to be a favorite destination for hundreds of thousands every year. By supporting local artisans, businesses, healthcare providers, bodyworkers, and talents, they work with dozens of professionals in the area to bring the best local offerings to their retreat guests while also supporting the community.
Their unique leadership and coaching approach helps individuals find empowerment and self-advocacy in their existing skills and gifts. They provide encouragement and support for clients to gain additional tools in areas they wish to address, and aid in discovering the most productive ways to implement those resources into their real-life goals and challenges.
Jacqui is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and holds accreditations in Natural Holistic Remedies. She has obtained dozens of certifications in continued education within the medical care field and is certified in NLP, DBT, SFBT, and Group Therapy. Jacqui is the Apothecarial Chemist behind every formula used in Botanically Fused Formulas (BFF LLC), which is based out of Ashland and is the parent company of O.W.R.
Throughout her adult life, Jacqui raised her family and was a foster parent for many children. She also worked as an artist and creative designer and even opened an art gallery in 2010. Unfortunately, chronic pain became a constant in her life soon after the gallery's opening. In 2012, she transitioned to studying Integrative Medicine and served as a Life Coach for the IDD community for the State of California.
In 2016, she started and ran a nationally recognized nonprofit for a short time, providing thousands of persons in need with shoes and socks. Unfortunately, she fell ill again shortly thereafter. However, Jacqui has found that incorporating alternative medicine into her own medical treatment has significantly improved her life, and she is passionate about sharing this knowledge with others.
She is quick to emphasize that she values Western Medicine and is grateful to live in a country with such advanced medical and scientific fields. Her goal is to empower her clients to add to their current medical treatments, not to replace or dismiss them. Now, Jacqui is happy to be living a full and healthy life, and she continues to expand her knowledge and education in the field. She enjoys helping others discover additional resources to aid them on their own journeys.
Billy recently retired from his 25-year career within a multi-billion dollar worldwide company. He decided to use his extensive experience in mentoring, business degrees, and his passion for supporting and encouraging others to welcome and host people on a more personal level.
During his last decade at the worldwide organization, part of Billy's role was to mentor and overhaul cultural dynamics within established systems. He introduced groundbreaking psychological and managerial techniques to improve relations among employees, leading to increased productivity and reduced conflicts and manufacturing costs. Billy is also passionate about financial coaching and has helped many individuals create a more secure financial future.
Billy's ability to not only overcome but also flourish, even in the darkest moments of his life, has given him a unique perspective on life. It has fueled his empathy for others and his desire to support couples and individuals in their search for healthier and more fulfilling relationships. Billy became a single father in high school and worked full-time to support his family. He later went on to work as an Alaskan fisherman and became one of the youngest Plant Managers before returning to school to earn his business degree. For over a decade, Billy developed a homestead property in Western Oregon while commuting to California for work. These and other life experiences helped shape him into the person he is today and anchor him back in Oregon, where he does what he loves with his loving wife.
