Our Founders


Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM, earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University in Fort Collins in 1994, and is an accredited veterinarian licensed in Colorado. In addition to conventional veterinary training, she studied veterinary homeopathy, homotoxicology, Reiki, EFT, and many other holistic modalities. Dr. Jean has a strong interest in flower, animal, gem, and etheric essences, and founded Spirit Essences™ in 1995.  (The name Spirit Essences™ was changed to Jackson Galaxy Solutions in the Spring of 2017.)  Dr. Jean has also served as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. She lives in Denver, Colorado with five fabulous felines: Mystic, Flynn, Puzzle, Sundance, and Spencer.



Jackson Galaxy, host of Animal Planet's™ My Cat From Hell, is a cat behaviorist with over 20 years of experience who found his calling while working for nearly 9 years at an animal shelter.

It was there he first encountered Dr. Jean's flower essence remedies.  At first a skeptic, he was quickly convinced of their efficacy through personal experience.  He continues to use them to this day.

True to his goal of helping save the 4 million+ animals who die each year in shelters, he works closely with rescue organizations through the Jackson Galaxy Foundation.
