At an early age Jacqui knew she wanted to work in television. So at 14 she earned her first industry paycheck after writing to every local TV company and gaining a work-experience placement. More than two decades later, Jacqui still earns paychecks by doing what she loves doing the most - 'making things happen' in production.
"Made the seemingly impossible possible"
Head of Daytime, ITV Studios
Since then Jacqui has gone on to produce thousands of hours of programs in the UK and USA as Executive in Charge, Line Producer and Producer. Her work covers every genre from high profile award shows to award winning investigative series. She's worked with the biggest names in front of and behind the camera. Her reputation as being a calm, competent, creative problem solver (often in challenging production environments) has enabled her to achieve international success including launching the most watched factual series in the world and the most distributed telethon in history.
