Jackie’s fast rise at the agency, from Account Manager to her present position as Vice President, speaks well for the confidence that she instills in her clients. She largely focuses on national clients in the commercial real estate and legal industry sector, as well as consumer and technology accounts. Her outlook for each client is toward the bigger picture goal, as well as managing and overseeing their day-to-day needs. Jackie has worked with several clients during her entire tenure at the agency, which attest to her prowess at managing client relationships and sensitivities.
Jackie has had a colorful professional experience that has taken her all over the world. Having aspired at one time to be a broadcast journalist, pop singer and novelist – sometimes all at the same time – she now channels those passions into her client work and is a sought-after writer and editor. She has counseled Fortune 50 companies, written articles for client trade publications, and managed the communications and marketing needs of clients, including writing content and planning large-scale events.
She has taken a non-traditional career path and is passionate about mentoring young people. Jackie is a strong advocate for reading books, consuming different news mediums and pushing the boundaries of intellectual curiosity. She believes that successful PR counselors need to have a broad knowledge of pop culture, diversity issues, politics, as well as sound business acumen and common sense.
Jackie is an avid Tweeter, a die-hard sports fan and a voracious reader. In her spare time, you’ll find her reading a novel and drinking coffee. She holds three degrees, all from the University of Southern California, where she serves on the faculty of the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, teaching Effective Writing for Strategic Public Relations.
Jackie resides in Los Angeles with her husband, Justin.
