Jackie is fifth generation Fiji born. Her ancestors lived and worked in the area where a Girl & her world is based. After moving to Sydney to study, she spent a few years back home running the Fiji Red Cross Society’s ‘Health and Care’ program and had a great impact on service provision to vulnerable people there that is still felt today. Jackie now works in Sydney as a consultant in international development and with NSW Health as an evaluation advisor. She brings her heart and soul to a Girl & her world, along with her practical way of thinking and ability to throw together a strategic plan. Jackie loves sitting under a tree eating green mangoes and having a good old ‘talanoa’ (chat) about real life issues.
Jackie has a Masters in International Public Health and a BA in Sociology.
