With a formal academic background in Natural History as a conservation biologist, Jackie has a host of natural history expertise and experience working directly with scientists and so truly understands the biology and detail of her film subjects.
Moving into film making Jackie trained at the world renowned BBC Natural History unit and was a key part of the creative team for the award winning Springwatch and Autumnwatch formats alongside a host of blue chip and presenter led wildlife films. She then went on to work extensively on wildlife formats specifically for children whilst raising her own young children.
