A Southern belle from Dallas, Texas, Jackie has been a comedienne and performer since she entered this world. She has a booming, deep voice that won many beauty pageants in the singing category, but also got her scolded by every teacher she’s ever had. She can’t help it that her voice carries! A performer since she was 3, Jackie was nicknamed “Little Patsy” by the locals due to her soulful singing resembling Patsy Cline. She packed the house at the Garland Opry and brought tears to many eyes. Jackie later attended the University of Texas at Austin and received a BS degree in Radio Television & Film. Her acting career officially began when she landed a recurring role on the Aaron Sorkin dramedy, STUDIO 60 ON THE SUNSET STRIP. Jackie then found her comedy home at the UCB and has been performing main stage since 2008 when she was just a teeny baby in the original musical FREAK DANCE: THE FORBIDDEN DIRTY BOOGALOO written by Matt Besser. She reprised her role of Jezebel in the feature film version of the stage show. Other UCB stage credits include The Dirtiest Sketch Contest, Other People’s Stuff, Mix tape, What’s Going On with Mike Mitchell, Welcome Sinners, Oscar Winners: Revealed, Sketch Cram, Let’s Do This, UCB Cagematch, The It Sucked Awards, Sketch Showdown, and etc. She’s an alum of the Maude Sketch team GOODMAN, the Winners of the 2012 UCB Odyssey. Her most fulfilling UCB gig combines both passions, singing and comedy: currently performing and writing on the Quick & Funny Musicals Company. She has written such musicals as Walter White & The Amazing Blue Crystal Meth, The Best Little Hoarder House in Texas, and Catfish: The Musical. Other acting credits include: The Birthday Boys, Comedy Bang Bang, The feature film INHERENT VICE, and national campaigns for such brands as Sears, McDonald’s, Dodge, and Applebee’s. Jackie is also passionate about the environment, and shames her friends when they drink out of single-use plastic bottles.
