Honolulu, United States

Nuclear Engineer turned screenwriter. Unrepped and interested in a manager who is passionate about true stories and bloody genre-fare. I also love adaptations!

After five years of active duty Navy service and a childhood of moving around the country as a military brat, Jackie moved to Los Angeles where she dove into the entertainment industry as an executive assistant at Creative Artists Agency and Perfect Storm Entertainment. She fell in love with screenwriting while completing the Writers Guild Foundation’s Veterans Writing Program and earned her MFA in TV and Screenwriting from Stephens College. She’s been writing ever since with a love for horror and passion for telling STEM-centric stories. 

She also directs! Her latest short is a sci-fi/horror Dollar Baby adaptation of Stephen King's BEACHWORLD and available to watch here with permission: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wd7HeWs0jVQ&feature=youtu.be

These days, she works at the Pearl Harbor Navy Shipyard as a nuclear engineering instructor and writes during her off-time in the fresh island air of Oahu, Hawaii. She’s an avid traveler alongside her husband Jon and rescue dog Maxie, and always says yes to new adventures.
