About the event

Jackie was forced to fend for herself at an early age and found comfort in either reading a new book or watching her favorite TV shows. After several years as a Spanish teacher, Jackie left teaching to pursue a career as a TV writer. Now an LA-based drama writer, Jackie’s writing focuses primarily on diverse female-driven stories that explore friendship, found family, identity, and love. She was an assistant on several shows including SIREN and GINNY & GEORGIA, before her first staff writing job on TURNER & HOOCH for Disney+. She was most recently a story editor on the CW’s 4400. Jackie is also an advocate for diverse voices and the elevation of support staff into more staffing opportunities. She is one of the leaders of the Awesome Assistants of Color Facebook Group and co-wrote an op-ed in The Hollywood Reporter about how to broach race in the writers’ room. When she isn't writing, Jackie loves to travel with her husband, read YA/romance novels, watch TV and train for her next pole dance competition.
