When did you start giving to issues that are important to you?
"My faith, a sense of humility, and a sense of responsibility to give back. My faith grounds and guides me. I maintain a level of humility in all that I am and all that I do, recognizing that each of us are a small part of something much bigger, yet we each have a responsibility to do our part. If doors were not opened for me, if someone had not taken the time to truly “see me”, I would not have been able to accomplish half of what I have today. I am passionately driven by, and compelled by a sense of responsibility to, and for, others."
Jackie's current philanthropic focus is on: The Getting Ahead Program; The Howard County Chamber Women's Leadership Initiative; Leadership Howard County
