MY NAME IS:
I'm a Florida native living, exploring, and flourishing in Atlanta, GA.
I've worked in publishing, advertising, and tech as a writer, editor, and manager for 15+ years. I got my start at Harcourt School Publishers working with a talented team of textbook editors in the social studies department. After leaving Harcourt, I helped launch Design Trade Magazine, a high-end design magazine based in Boca Raton. As assistant editor of the mag, I oversaw a team of feature editors and creative interns compiling informative features, product/gift guides, and advertorials.
A couple of years and a few hundred miles later, I joined the team at Paxen Learning where I managed a staff of writers and designers producing GED textbooks and workbooks for the Department of Defense. A few more years and a few more miles later, I packed my things, headed to Georgia, and tried out agency life. I worked at a handful of local agencies, working with and managing creative teams to ensure brand standards, keep clients happy, and build and grow content teams.
After agency life, I made the swtich to tech where I've been managing creatives and content creators for 5 years.
When I'm not working, I'm coming up with fun DIY projects around my home, going to shows, working on my skating skills, trying new recipes, exploring with my dogs, and checking out new, local restaurants and shops with friends.
" ... Jacqueline’s unmatched combination of blistering speed, meticulous accuracy, and deep understanding of each client’s unique brand voice gave us the edge needed to consistently exceed expectations for our content-driven marketing programs. Jacqueline’s positive attitude and infectious enthusiasm were invaluable to our team, and she was actively involved in the mentoring and coaching of our up-and-coming copywriters. Jacqueline was simply the best editor and editorial “standard-bearer” that I could have asked for, and I will miss working with her. I cannot recommend her strongly enough, and if given the opportunity, I would hire her again in a heartbeat."
