Jackie got a BFA in acting from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University. After graduating she moved to NYC where she performed Off-Broadway, Off-Off Broadway and Where-The-Hell-Is Broadway before landing a role in the Off-Broadway production "Tony n'Tina's Wedding". She has been lucky enough to be a part of the Lincoln Center New Works Series, The Public Theatre’s Reading Series, The New York Fringe Festival and to perform at the National Theatre in Washington, DC. She’s also done commercials, voiceovers and stand-up comedy in all the major clubs before making her way to Los Angeles in 2000. In Los Angeles, she’s continued to do theatre and in 2001 she received an Ovation Award nomination for her solo show, “Last Stop: Neverland” which she wrote and performed. She also did short films, was a regular skit performer on Fox’s THE BEST DAMNED SPORTS SHOW EVER and can also be heard as the voice of Harley on the Xbox games "Outlaw Golf I and II", "Outlaw Volleyball" and "Outlaw Tennis". In 2007 she was featured on National Lampoon Comedy Radio Networks’ Comedy Countdown, the Los Angeles Comedy Festival and the Las Vegas Comedy Festival while performing stand-up in clubs in and around Los Angeles. In 2009 Jackie moved back to New York City where she continues to pursue her acting career and is a proud member of The Barrow Group/FAB (theater FOR, ABOUT and BY women).

MORE ABOUT ME
I keep doing theater because it was my first, truest and longest lasting love. It is where I feel most alive. It's been there for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health and I will love and cherish doing it until death do us part.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
I am currently playing the Nurse/Lady Montague in an upcoming production of MAD Company's Romeo & Juliet at the Abrons Arts Center (3/23 - 4/2) and writing a solo show with the working title "RAISED BY WOMEN".
