Jackie was born in England, but moved to Vancouver at a young age. She obtained her MSDT (Master Scuba Diver Trainer) certification and cruised the world taking certified passengers diving and teaching the non-certified DSD (Discover Scuba Diver) course.
After trying her hand at being a nanny, Jackie decided the travel industry is where her heart was and she transitioned to being an agent in 1991, ultimately joining North South Travel in 2006.
When not working, she loves to go camping and hiking with her husband and 2 dogs. She also heads up the “Mars Bar Challenge” which involves interested clients bringing back Mars Bars from around the world and getting together for “blind tastings” to determine who makes the best bars.
Jackie’s clients say that they feel that she is with them from beginning to end, “it’s like she is with me during my trip, she is always accessible.”
