Jackie grew up in Grove City, OH . Her first musical performance was at the Scioto Boat club's holiday party where her dad made her sing Delta Dawn. She was 4 years old. At the age of 13 she won a local song writing contest and  performed the song live , accompanied by a piano and three violins. She has gone on to sing for weddings, church services,  sporting events, and recently has joined a country acoustic trio, The Fiddlestix (http://www.facebook.com/thefiddlestix). In her spare time she enjoys learning piano, coaching cheerleaders, and spending time with her family and friends.
