Jackie was born and raised in Birmingham, England. After becoming a Christian in 1991, she began work in the Church of England. For over 21 years, she was the Administrator at St. James Church in Aston, Birmingham, England. During this time, she became a Licensed Lay Reader, and the Assistant Warden of Readers. Jackie emigrated to Canada in 2014 and was very grateful to find another position in a church, here at Burlington Baptist Church in 2017. Although she has been in Canada for a number of years, she is proud to say she still retains her ‘Brummie’ accent. When Jackie isn’t working or busy with family and friends, she enjoys gardening, knitting, and painting with acrylics.
