Originally from Belleville Ontario, Jackie brings her small town charm to the City of Ottawa. Growing up the daughter in a well-known construction family, Jackie was introduced to Real Estate at an early age. Raised in a male dominated world she had to keep up with the boys and has an undeniably strong presence, work ethic and confidence that has propelled her into the rooms of many powerful people. Jackie's clients are primarily by referral and she prides herself on nurturing those relationships with loyalty, honesty and respect. Jackie’s biggest strength is building lasting trusting relationships. Jackie’s relates well with a diverse population, and can find a common ground with anyone.
Jackie's steadfast work ethic led her to pursue a University degree in a Bachelor of Science with Honours, in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa. She started a fitness and yoga business, as a Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor and Retreat Facilitator. Not long after starting her career in fitness Jackie got married, started a family and followed her husband as he pursed his career as a professional hockey player. They moved to Texas, Florida and then to Europe. Traveling and living in Europe, Jackie admired the European architecture and design; this sparked her interest in property values and Real Estate. Coming back to Canada with her husband and three boys Jackie took on Real Estate as her full time career and continues to peruse fitness and yoga.
Today, Jackie and her husband have invested in real estate in Ontario and Quebec. Jackie’s success in the Ottawa real estate market doesn’t go unnoticed, she is persistent, driven, and she continues to build trusting relationships with clients and friends. As a residential real estate agent Jackie gets what’s she wants, never stops and will go above and beyond for her clients. She believes that health is wealth, and you need to LOVE where you live.
I found yoga in my twenties, initially as a form of exercise, but over time progressed into so much more. I’m full of fire, a fast moving pitta, walk fast, talk fast, do a million thing in one day kind of gal. Yoga slows me down! I’m more grounded, mindful, less reactive, patient, and balanced because of yoga. Living in the moment is my specialty, and yoga is exactly that. Slowing down to connect with life, thoughts, feelings, and emotions. I love teaching yoga because I love helping others to slow down, connect and enjoy what is. Carpe Diem – Seize the Day are words to live by!!
As a top producing real estate agent and a hockey mom of 3 boys, balance is a necessity, and carving out time for myself is a non negotiable. I love to workout, go to yoga or spin classes, and being outdoors-mountain biking, snowboarding and wake boarding.
