Jackie is a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) and CMA (Certified Cost Management Accountant).
She received her B.S. Degree in Accounting from the University of Maryland, College Park and immediately went to work for Price Waterhouse in Audit working with a wide variety of clients in the Washington DC metropolitan area. After spending seven years auditing client financials, SEC filings, special financial projects and reviewing internal control environments, she moved over to the management consulting side working with technical teams to implement financial and management reporting systems in the Philadelphia area. After moving back to Washington DC, Jackie was a controller of a mid-sized network consulting services company and helped to organize and sell the company to a larger competitor. Another move, this time to Boston, brought her to Lotus Development Corp/ IBM to conduct financial reviews of international offices, business practices and other special financial projects required by management. An opportunity at Fidelity Investments as a Director in the Corporate Business Unit kept her closer to home and challenged with financial management of an $250 million unit and multiple financial projects across Business Units in a competitive and dynamic financial services industry.
Jackie is married and has three children. She enjoys helping out in her community and long distance running in her spare time, one day earning the coveted World Major Marathon medal and joining the Seven Continents Club.
