Born and raised in the beautiful San Diego, California, Jackie booked her first professional job as a hip-hop dancer at Sea World Summer Nights with popstar Ashlee Simpson at the age of 15.
Jackie attended Cal State Fullerton receiving her BFA in musical theatre, where she gained the majority of her training and inspiration.
Post graduation, Jackie moved to Hollywood where she booked her first (now onto her sixth) International Tour with Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas as a Swing and many other roles. Afterwards, blessed to sign with Avalon Artists Group, she continued to book tours and roles at East West Players and Pasadena Playhouse.
One of her dreams came true as she starred as Kim in McCoy Rigby's production of Miss Saigon. Jackie is the very first Vietnamese actress to portray 'Kim'. The production finished remounting in 2013 in Macau, China, where Jackie was able to reprise her role as 'Kim'.
On her down time, Jackie enjoys volunteering, reading, coffee, devoting her heart to Harry Potter, and blogging. She is an advocate for Alopecia Awareness and attempts to travel the world on very little money and a dream.
Jackie currently lives in New York.
