Jackie is a returning Ithacan after a big, long adventure. She grew up in Cornell heights but always had a passion for travel and discovery. A 1987 CIA degree in Classical French gastronomy opened a door to an exciting career freelancing as a private chef aboard yachts, estates, and private islands for high net worth individuals. She built a stellar reputation over 25 years providing her unique brand of excellent service and attention to detail for her valued clientele which include royalty, politicians, actors, authors, athletes, and aristocratic heirs. Jackie is a hearty seawoman with great survival instincts, troubleshooting skills, and many salty tales of high seas adventures. A well-seasoned traveler and jack-of-all-trades, Jackie is also a published author, formerly a realtor and Bed & Breakfast owner in Newport, RI, and survivor of an one-on-one encounter with a box jellyfish.
A daily practioner of Taoist tai chi, Jackie volunteers her time fundraising for local charities such as the Southern Tier Food Bank and teaches a beginner tai chi class. She is also a graduate of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell.
As a full time realtor, Jackie provides her well honed skills to both sellers and buyers and her calm demeanor under pressure is one of her most valuable assets. She completed her Graduate Realtor Institute training and received her GRI designation and Accredited Buyer's Representation, ABR, designation in 2011. Jackie provides clients and customers with her professional acumen and personalized service for smooth transactions and successful results.
