Meet Marlaina Jaques
Meet Marlaina Jaques
Marlaina Jaques first came to Prince Rupert for a career opportunity a few short years ago. She quickly identified a need for additional services in the mental health and wellness industry, leading to the birth of her very own private practice in 2016. Marlaina has been proud to support her fellow community members, with the ultimate goal of reaching out to as many people as possible. There are some under-served regions in Northern BC and it is Marlaina’s intention to help them.
With a few years living along the beautiful coast under her belt, this entrepreneur has decidedly become hooked on life in the north. Marlaina enjoys spending much of her free time exploring the endless outdoor opportunities, and of course, expressing herself through art. Every outing a new trail, or a new outlook is discovered. It’s always beautiful, even in the rain.
For this counsellor and private practice owner, business in Prince Rupert has been steadily pulling out new and exciting ventures. She loves seeing innovative entrepreneurs thriving in her community.
