Born in Monroe, Louisiana in 1965, Jacqueline moved to Springfield, MA with her family in 1970 and has since been a Springfield resident.
A graduate of the former Classical High School and grad student of American International College, Jacqueline subsequently left college to marry and start a family with her high school sweetheart. Though employed in several positions in her youth, it was the birth of her youngest son and his later diagnosis of autism that brought Jacqueline back to her first passion as a means of catharsis and coping mechanism…writing.
Though the dream of publishing her work had never truly been forgotten, it was this new found drive to help educate her son, Joshua’s, peers about autism as a way of bridging the communication gap that motivated her to self publish her first book in 2006.
Since then, No Small Victories has grown to become an organization active in increasing Autism Awareness as well as annually hosting an Autism awareness fair and boasting 4 books and counting.
