Meet Kelli Jaecks! 

Kelli is a menopause survivor who has catapulted, stumbled, laughed, and cried her way to the other side of perimenopause and menopause... longer a hormone hostage (at least most days), her goal is to help you live well and with personal power through all the changes you’ll go through in this incredible journey of life!

As a prolific, entertaining speaker on women’s health issues, leadership, and team building, Kelli tailors each presentation and topic to engage and energize the audience. 


Kelli Swanson Jaecks, RDH, MA holds a Master’s degree from Oregon State University in Communication and Adult Education, where she taught Leadership and Public Speaking. She received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Oregon Health Sciences University in 1996. 

Kelli takes pride in her lifelong commitment to health and wellness. She is an active leader in the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, and was the national president in 2014-15. Her charitable spirit keeps her busy both in her hometown of Salem, Oregon, and throughout the US as an active board and committee member with several local, state, and international organizations.  She currently speaks at conferences around the world on a wide variety of healthcare and leadership topics.


Ms. Jaecks is owner of Kelli Jaecks | Verbal Impact!, LLC, an educational company whose mission is to empower people to optimal health and excellent leadership through education and entertainment. She is a nationally published author, speaker, and blogger on a variety of healthcare related topics in the arenas of women’s health, overall heath, and leadership.


Kelli has recently launched her new book: Martinis & Menopause­—Strategies, Science and Sips that Empower Women to Beat the Hormone Groan.

She writes a popular blog about women’s health and well-being. She makes the science that answers, ‘Why is this happening?’, accessible and easy to understand, while offering useful, practical tips to feel better and live better!

She hosts Martinis & Menopause soirées, social events held in partnerships with local businesses in cities across the US.  Soirées combine a cocktail-party atmosphere with valuable, practical information. These fun, educational, women-celebrating events encourage open dialogue on women’s health and wellness issues, focusing on perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause.


When not speaking, or working, Kelli enjoys traveling to cool venues for scuba diving and participates in live theatre!
