Growing up, Jackie moved around a lot due to her father being in the hospitality business. Needless to say, it’s never been hard for her to meet new people. She considers Savannah, GA to be her hometown, and it’s the place her parents still reside. She said that moving to SW Georgia was very easy to navigate and make friends. Jackie attended Savannah Christian Preparatory School during high school and received her bachelor's degree in Marketing at the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia in 2011. She minored in Fashion Merchandise and worked in retail for 8 months when she moved to Thomasville. In 2012, she accepted a marketing position at Servpro of Thomas, Colquitt & Grady Counties where she has worked for the last three and a half years.

Servpro gave her the opportunity to be involved in the chamber in Moultrie, Thomasville, Cairo and Bainbridge. She has been involved in the Ambassador committee, Membership committee, Special Events committee, and the Young Professionals and Entrepreneurs committee with the Thomasville Chamber.
