Jackie was born in S.L.C., Utah, and moved to Florida in 2001. She graduated from the University of Florida, Gainesville in 2013 with a B.S. degree in Animal Science. She has previously worked at the Alachua County Humane Society and as a counselor for Camp Canine.
She has vast experience volunteering for several horse ranches and as a dog handler assisting and caring for adoptive dogs. Ever since Jackie has been able to walk and talk she has been interested in working with animals of all shapes and sizes. By a twist of fate, Jackie came to the Sam Ivy family first as a client. Her newest family member; a blue Pitbull named Ace, was wreaking havoc on his daily walks. He is now able to be calm both inside and out of the house. Jackie loves working with Sam Ivy clients to help them achieve the same peace and calm in their households.
