Jackie grew up with a strong desire to help children, juveniles and families in her community. Growing up with siblings who received special education services in the public school system created her lifelong passion to help others. She began her career at the Dallas District Attorney’s office and spent the majority of her time in the area of juvenile law. At the same time, Jackie actively engaged in her community by volunteering at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas and at the SPCA. After leaving the DA’s office, Jackie expanded her career in juvenile law, family law, special education law and represented parents and children in CPS cases. Jackie’s love for children inspired her to obtain her board certification by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Juvenile Law in 2008.
Jackie is a single mother of a son with Down syndrome. Jackie’s son is the light of her life. Travis’ special needs create a heightened knowledge and experience in her legal practice. Her family lives in Allen and is actively involved in the community by regularly attending high school football games and involvement at her church. She has recently joined the Leadership Allen Fairview class and is excited as this opportunity will bring her closer to her community.
Jackie enjoys traveling with her family and friends as well as enjoying as much time as possible outdoors with her son. Jackie is committed to continuing her mission of helping juveniles, children, parents and families in her community and assisting them in moving forward from their challenges.
