About Crystal Jackson


I am a wife, mother, nurse, and educator based in Fort Pierce, Florida. I have been practicing as a registered nurse in pediatrics and maternal child health since 2016. I was also a 2nd grade teacher in addition to providing academic tutoring to elementary school students in Gainesville, FL. I hold a B.S in Nursing from the University of Miami and an M.Ed in Elementary Education from the University of Florida. I am currently pursuing a M.S in Nursing at Florida A&M University to become a Women's Health Nurse Practitioner. My interests include all things pediatrics, early pregnancy loss, preeclampsia, perinatal mental health, menstrual hygiene, and reproductive justice. I am passionate about eradicating health disparities that affect Black women and children while promoting health literacy and self-advocacy.


My Recovery Story

Trying to be supermom and advance in my career while having to maintain personal relationships and make time for self care was extremely overwhelming. I was so lost. I felt like I was only living for my kids. I had no purpose or identity outside of being a mother and I was stuck in a fog of anxiety and depression that seemed endless. Then I woke up. I got help and I got better! I used my lived experiences, my pain to my advantage. I turned everything that was meant to break me into an opportunity to elevate. For every door that slammed in my face, a window was opened.

My Motivation To Help

I am a mother of three living children and I am currently pregnant with a fourth. I have also suffered from two miscarriages. I have overcome birth trauma and perinatal anxiety and depression in addition to being diagnosed with GAD in 2019. I have taken trainings from Postpartum Support International related to Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders and Advanced Psychotherapy and I am in the process of becoming certified in perinatal mental health. I want to use my lived experiences to connect with you. I found my voice after suffering in silence for years and want to help you find yours!
