Jacqueline grew up in Falmouth, Maine, and while she did not always know she wanted to be an attorney, she always knew she wanted a career where she could help people. Jackie found her way to the law several years after earning her B.A. in American Studies, with a concentration in Political Science, from Bard College in 2006. In 2009, Jacqueline moved back to Maine and began her law career at the University of Maine School of Law in 2011. She graduated in 2014.
While at Maine Law, Jacqueline focused her studies on constitutional, family, and elder law. Jacqueline was a summer intern at the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic in 2013 and continued to take clinical classes throughout her last year in law school. While at the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic, Jacqueline represented clients in family law, probate, criminal, and juvenile criminal matters. In the spring of 2014, Jacqueline appealed a guardianship of minor case to the Maine Law Court.
Jacqueline is particularly interested in guardianships of adults and children, reproductive justice, and issues concerning women. Jacqueline has always been interested in the intersection of law and policy, which led her to enroll in the Public Policy and Management (PPM) program at the Muskie School for Public Policy. Jacqueline graduated from Muskie in 2015 with her Master’s in Public Policy and Management, and also earned a certificate in Social Policy Analysis.
