“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain.”
– Dolly Parton

Hailing from Regina, Saskatchewan, Jacqueline has always wanted to be a performer. She began dancing at a very young age, and it wasn’t long before she added singing and acting to performance skills. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she got involved in theatre performing with a local theatre company – Do It With Class. It was performing with this company, that Jacqueline realized she wanted to make performing a full time career.

Jacqueline auditioned for, and was accepted to the prestigious Music Theatre Program at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, so she packed her bags and headed East. Three years later, she graduated with her final performance being a much heralded turn as Sally Bowles in Cabaret.

Immediately after graduation, Jacqueline jumped right into the professional world, landing an episode of the CW series Hellcats, and scoring her first professional stage job in the Stratford Festival/ Mirvish Production of A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum. In 2011, Jacqueline will make her debut at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, performing in Jesus Christ Superstar and Camelot.
