"Jacki Kwan, my queen of HA!HA!LOGY brings a spirit and flavor to my community which is untouched by other care givers or service providers. I think we forget the importance of humor as we get older. Jacki brings a therapeutic and strategic approach to this area. She redefines the difference of child-like and childish behaviors. Her works with our rehab residents has been crucial as an overall component of their wellness platform. Jacki is an essential part of our team!"

"Teabag over her hat, masked by the face of a receptive clown with her joyful costume garb, floppy shoes and all, Jacki Kwan taps into the soul of humankind through her non-verbal expression, warm affect and pacifying demeanor, a keen sounding board to all colors of people and patients, acutely to chronically ill, young and old. She is a remarkable spirit who delivers a subtle therapeutic approach with powerfully uplifting consequences."
