Jackie, has been involved with children for many years. Jackie herself is a married mother of 4 beautiful children, 3 girls and one boy, ranging in ages from 6 to 16. Outside of her own children, Jackie has been an egg donor on multiple occasions, and has been a gestational surrogate for 2 sets of twins.
When asked about her beginnings into surrogacy, she credits television for giving her the inspiration. “Back in 2004, I was watching a television program, when I saw a woman who was struggling with infertility…and it got me thinking about helping someone.” Since then Jackie has developed a passion for surrogacy and egg donation, and the impact it can have on families who are unable to have children on their own. Jackie’s passion to help people has been a staple her entire life. She has studied Personal Support Worker and Maternal Support Practitioner and has always been involved with helping people in some way. Her dedication, ambition and selflessness have led to many successes in her life, both personally and professionally.
Outside of the office, Jackie loves to spend time her friends and family and of course, her children. She and her husband enjoy amusement parks and family gatherings, and when the day winds down, Jackie also has a passion for genealogy and 16th Century literature.
