Jackie joined the Newswatch 16 team in 2014. You'll often see her out in the field with a camera and tripod in hand. As a multi-media journalist, Jackie shoots, edits and writes her own stories.

A Long Island, New York native, Jackie graduated from Hofstra University (Roll Pride!) with a degree in Broadcast Journalism. During her senior year, she was chosen as KABC's "On The Red Carpet" college journalist at the 84th Annual Academy Awards. Jackie reported from the Oscar's red carpet and interviewed stars like Meryl Streep, Tina Fey and, her personal favorite, George Clooney.

After graduation, Jackie made the move to Maine to work as a reporter and weekend anchor for WABI TV5.

She enjoys living in NEPA, a short ride to her New York family and friends. It also makes it a little easier for Jackie to (hopelessly) root for her favorite teams: the Mets and Jets.

A social media addict, Jackie loves connecting with viewers on Twitter and Facebook. If you have a story idea or just want to say hello, give her a follow or like!
