Starting out as a litigator, training managers across the Fortune 500 and speaking at conferences, I’ve always enjoyed public speaking. I know how to reach an audience and bring them along with me.
“Jacqueline spoke at our Boston food blogger conference on the topic of leveraging food and social media trends and for very good reason… she is one of the most tapped-into food bloggers/publishers in New England. Her rich understanding of food and the local food community, insights into social media and reflections on ethical food issues makes her my go-to-gal for questions about sustainability, seafood and social media. Our attendees at the conference really connected with Jacqueline both during her panel and throughout the day. Her quick wit, useful tactics and no-nonsense attitude made Jacqueline one of our favorite speakers.”

It’s a pleasure to work with Jackie. I hired her this spring to facilitate a workshop on social media and on-line presence for graduate students in the Boston University Gastronomy Program. Jackie’s culinary expertise, media know-how and professionalism made her an immediate hit with this audience of students and alumni. Jackie’s presentation was clear and engaging and it was obvious that she really knows her stuff when it comes to Internet communication and marketing. She gave the students wonderful tips and was very encouraging, especially for the people with little experience. I had very positive student feedback and I will definitely be hiring Jackie again in the future.
