The inspirational story of Jackie Gillies - star of The Real Housewives of Melbourne and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! - and one of Australia's most-sought after psychic mediums
Sassy and adventurous, Jackie Gillies devours life with style and a smile - and lives it to the shiny brim. Well known to Australian audiences from The Real Housewives of Melbourne and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! Jackie has another surprising side: she also works as a psychic medium, booked out months in advance.
Jackie was aware of her psychic gift from a very young age, but her career began in banking, where she developed her business skills and entrepreneurial flair. A series of events in 2004 encouraged her to follow her intuition to her true life's purpose. Jackie believes your thoughts create your reality - and her positive energy and inspiring spiritual guidance have earned her the reputation as one of Australia's most sought-after psychic mediums.
This is the story of a young woman from Newcastle who was on the corporate path, doing all the conventional things, but who found the courage to follow her gift and create an amazing life. It's a book for everyone who has a dream. It's also the story of bringing spirituality into everyday life.
Born in Croatia and raised in Newcastle, NSW, Jackie Gillies grew up in a close-knit family. In 2010, Jackie married the love of her life, Ben Gillies, drummer of the band Silverchair. They moved to Melbourne in 2013. Jackie divides her time between growing La Mascara Beverage Co., which she founded with Ben; TV appearances including four seasons of The Real Housewives Of Melbourne; charity work and providing psychic medium readings. A portion of her reading fees is donated to The Starlight Foundation, White Ribbon and Mission Australia. Jackie is also a strong supporter of the Moira Kelly Creating Hope Foundation.
