Born and raised in Minnesota, 

Jackie has always been drawn to theatre. 

 Running back and forth between

softball games and show choir competitions, 

she always snuck in time for performing.  


After performing in the Twin Cities for a few years,

she ventured out to NYC where she did a production of GODSPELL with the Gallery Players.  Her heart (and family and friends) called her back home to Minnesota, and she couldn't be happier.

Jackie most recently portrayed Tashtekova in Theatre Coup D'Etat's, Moby Dick.
