Jackie attended UC Davis receiving Bachelors in both Communication Studies and Political Science – Public Policy. She got her first taste of events during her 8 years working in politics. While running many successful campaigns, Jackie got the chance to plan events for her clients and local organizations. After politics, she transitioned into the most rewarding experience she could have ever imagined as the Events Manager for the LGBT Community Center managing all programs from the Annual Gala to Sacramento Pride 2018, the largest pride ever with 18k attendees. After much consideration Jackie decided to venture out of the nonprofit world and join the team at Bryan Allen Events.
