A writer, director, producer, actor, and the 2006 Royal Oak Elementary School Spelling Bee champion, Jackie has always liked staying busy. A graduate of Concordia University’s Communications Studies program, Jackie began her professional film career in visual effects, coordinating the production teams of major feature films.  Jackie’s latest short film Geni, which she wrote, directed & starred in, had its premiere at the Regent Park Film Festival in 2019. That same year, she was selected for the Black Women Film! Canada Leadership Program, and joined the upcoming season of the Regent Park Project web series as a co-writer and actor. She’s spending her quaran-time co-producing and co-hosting weekly virtual filmmaking skill share Skillin’ It, writing for LOCO Motion Pictures’ upcoming web series Loved Ones, story coordinating for CBC sitcoms in development Dwayne Has Issues and White Girl Magic, leading operations on the short film fund Reel Work Filmmaking Initiative on behalf of BIPOC TV & Film, and developing her own projects with her creative partner Rebecca Rogers.
