Jackie anchors KAMR Local 4 News at 5:00, 6:00, and 10:00, as well as Politics Today. She earned her bachelor’s in broadcasting in 2008 from West Texas A&M University and has made her career in local television news broadcasting ever since.
Growing up, Jackie never lived in one spot for long, but when she moved to the Amarillo area, she felt at home. Jackie strongly believes in volunteerism and now gives back all she can to the community that welcomed her.
Jackie has served as a United Way Loaned Executive and on the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Coalition. She regularly volunteers with Snack Pak 4 Kids, Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®, and the Friends of the Amarillo Zoo board. She currently serves on the executive board for the High Plains Food Bank and is involved in a local group of women entrepreneurs called Chick Bosses.
Jackie's career was recognized by her alma mater, West Texas A&M University's Communications Department with the "Rising Star" award in 2015. She was also recognized as a Woman of Distinction by the Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains with the "Discover" Award in 2016.
When Jackie isn't delivering the news, she loves to play with her dogs, Miles and Ladybird, and write—mostly about food.
