Love is in the air

Brooke Carsner takes over as owner of Intuitive Matchmaking


If you have been looking for love in all the wrong places, you need to go to a right place. Like Intuitive Matchmaking in Lake Oswego.

Former owner Jacqueline Nichols helped bring so many lovers together that now she is branching out into a new business, Jacqueline and Company, with the goal of keeping romance alive in the lives of married couples.

Her former assistant, Brooke Carsner, is now the new owner of Intuitive Matchmaking, and her desire to help people find love and be happy is stronger than ever.

“Jacqueline created so many success stories,” Carsner said. “I want to create many more.”

Carsner will certainly be a worthy successor to Nichols. Before she joined Intuitive Matchmaking three years ago, she was an amateur problem solver for her many friends, finding them jobs and so much more. Her happiest avocation, though, was matchmaking.

“I was always finding them boyfriends and girlfriends,” Carsner said. “I know a lot of people and I kind of collect them.” Also — “I’ve always been a hopeless romantic.”

Carsner’s greatest success story is herself.

“I’ve had my own love journey,” she said. “I’ve found my guy!”

As for taking the plunge into full ownership, Carsner said, “It was so inspiring to see the success Jacqueline had. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

“When someone told me I had changed her life, I said, ‘That’s it. This is what I want to do with the rest of my life.’”

Of course, Carsner is already planning her own touches for the business, such as creating lower-priced new programs that are more accessible to help others find love.

However, she is retaining the same motto: “Love Is in the Air.”

“There are no bounds to which we won’t go,” Carsner said.

Cupid is quite outclassed.
