Pennsylvania has been Jackie’s home for a few years. Before coming to Central PA, she was a reporter for WNEP in Scranton. Jackie covered everything from the manhunt for accused cop killer Eric Frien to breaking the biggest real estate fraud investigation in the state.

Jackie reported from the Oscar’s red carpet and interviewed stars like Meryl Streep, Tina Fey and, her personal favorite, George Clooney. (He called her great. She’s still not over it.)

When she’s not working, you can find Jackie on the couch immersed in a Netflix marathon, attempting to train her rescue dog Shea or hopelessly rooting for her favorite teams: the Mets and Jets.
