Jacqueline (known mostly as Jacquie but sometimes as Jacq!) is married to Ian and has a stepdaughter, Olivia. She works full time as the Director of Development at Abbotsleigh,a school for girls in Sydney where she used to be Deputy Head of the Junior School.
Jacqueline knew exactly what she wanted to do when she grew up after spending Years 4 and 5 with a wonderful teacher who was a true inspiration. Jacqueline remembers her years with Sally Hogan as great fun but more than that she recalls that it was Sally who instilled in her a belief that you should spend your life doing something that you love! Jacqueline has always loved writing and has for many years kept diaries (which she says should definitely be destroyed before anyone else has a chance to read them!). Inspired by her students, she would often write poems and stories for the class and always hoped that one day she would be published.
