Jackie wakes up every morning wanting to make the world a better place. She brings leadership and confidence to help move projects forward whether in the community she serves, the individuals she advocates for, or the organizations she chairs. She became a Realtor® following a successful three-decade career in business, sales, and entrepreneurialism. Specializing in the Sarasota and Manatee County markets, Ja... more.ckie enthusiastically shares her love for the region with her customers, from the beautiful sunlit streets to the captivating culture and the vivid live/work/play lifestyle.

A capstone of her professional career, Jackie, and her husband of nearly more than 34 years, Stephen, helmed a startup in her hometown of Evansville, IN which ultimately grew into a diverse multi-million-dollar digital print, marketing, and communications operation that serviced fortune 100 and 500 companies. They built their business on integrity, quality, turnaround, and pricing, prioritizing a customer-centric approach in everything. The experience taught her the true importance of managing profit and loss – steering thirty-five employees and giving them the environment to thrive.

Her background in real estate and sales makes her an effective guide and coach to buyers and sellers. She served as Director of Business Development at Northwestern Mutual, as an Account Executive for a national Energy Service Company traveling the state of Florida developing multi-million-dollar energy performance contracts working with City and County governments. She was a Sales Engineer, travelled domestic and globally, and negotiated long-term contracts for ALCOA, ALCAN and several other aluminum companies. Before joining Michael Saunders & Company she was a Realtor® in our local market, and a Realtor® at FC Tucker in Indiana. Jackie holds her ABR (Accredited Buyer Representative), her SRS (Seller Representative Specialist), a Bachelor of Liberal Studies from the University of Evansville and achieved the President’s Club at Sandler Sales.

Complementing her real estate career, Jackie is very active in the Venice and Sarasota communities. She currently is on the board at the Forty Carrots Family Center, was on the Steering Committee for the Van Wezel Foundation Bayfront 2020, Co-Chaired the Night of Hope & Healing 2020 for Child Protection Center, Chaired and Co-Chaired the Venice Chamber Business of the Year in 2018 and 2019. She was recognized as a Top 40 Business Professional in 2019 by the Venice Gondolier, and was honored by Michael Saunders & Company with the Master’s Award in 2022 and 2023, and the President’s Award in 2021.

Making a difference, Jackie always remains “dedicated to the extraordinary”.
