Hello, Insert your name here,
I’m Jack, short for Jacqueline. My nickname growing up was Jack Sprat, apparently, I could eat no fat… but I digress.
I’ve spent my life performing on stage. From Tina Butterfield’s backyard, to McGill University, to Second City.
I fell into TV and hosted a few cooking and lifestyle shows, acted in some films and TV shows, mostly as “The Concerned Mom”. I am a Mom of two, so it wasn’t a big stretch artistically.
What I loved most about that time in my career was rolling out of bed and having someone else brush my hair.
On Feb 13, 2011 my life changed. I spent 82 days in the NICU with my micro preemie daughter, Tess. It was there that I discovered my improv and media skills would be put to better use to empower patients, families and clinicians.
My lifelong friend Ellen and I co-founded Sway Partners with a mission to help folks communicate effectively through purposeful storytelling and leadership presence. We see potential everywhere and believe everyone has natural gifts which they are yet to explore.
What I love most about this time in my career is belly laughing with Ellen, but I do miss getting my hair brushed.
I specialize in:
Public Speaking and Storytelling Skills
Body & Voice Confidence
Story and Slide Development
Multi-Media Training; on and off camera
Improvising to connect with your audience
