Jackie has been active in the sport community from a young age, starting with gymnastics, moving into soccer and participating in track & field, volleyball, basketball, hockey and badminton.

After moving back to her hometown in Beamsville, Ontario, she continued to play OCAA Women’s Soccer for Niagara College while completing her Sport Management Diploma. Once Jackie graduated, she moved to beautiful British Columbia and worked in the Sales & Marketing Department at Big White Ski Resort, where she was able to observe first-hand the impact sport has on Okanagan communities.
