Jacqueline is a Tacoma area native. She currently lives in South Tacoma with her spouse, dog, and two cats. She received her Bachelor's Degree from Central Washington University and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Oregon. Upon graduation, she spent a year teaching in Ethiopia. Since this adventure, Jacqueline has served in a variety of roles within the legal profession. She worked for over five years for the Social Security Administration as an Attorney Advisor, collaborating with Administrative Law Judges to provide disability decisions for claimants. However, her passion lies in serving small businesses. In 2013, her husband opened his own business. This gave her first hand experience as she observed the challenges he faced as the company grew from a two person operation to an employer of nearly 20 people with two locations. With an emphasis on community building, Jacqueline is involved in a number of professional and community service organizations including Sunset Rotary and Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity. She serves on the Board of Directors of the Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region. Jacqueline can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
