How She Met Phil:


The two met after a show at Old Orchard Beach, Maine on July 29, 1988. They went for pizza and stayed until dawn. They would decide to marry in November. After putting off the process, partly due to preparing for Rory's arrival, they wed July 13, 1989 in a very private and informal ceremony. Fred Long was Phil's best man and Steve Clark was Jacki's maid of honor!



Brief History:


Born on Fort Ord army base in Monterey, California, Jacqueline spent her very early years in Orange County, California. At nine her family moved to Colorado. "I grew up in Colorado, on a small non-working ranch, outside of a very small town (Woodland Park)." Jacki boarded horses, spent quality time in the woods and became a lifelong animal lover in the company of dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, pet rats, hermit crabs, horses, cows and many others.

Partly because of her height, 5'9" by the age of twelve, and avoidance of social cliques, Jacqueline recalls being "the most unpopular kid in school. As a teenager and a preteen, I was always the outsider, the misfit." Uninterested in acting, she nonetheless enjoyed singing in such musicals as The King and I, The Wizard of Oz and My Fair Lady and also participated in state choral competitions.

A short-term photographic memory helped her to graduate as a junior, with straight A's, from Woodland Park High School. A full scholarship led her to the University of Northern Colorado. Having worked for a veterinarian as a teenager, she struggled between studying music and veterinary medicine. The struggle was short; after one semester she found herself bored with the curriculum and quit.

The awkward adolescent had, by now, fully bloomed, and Jacki was soon discovered in Denver by a modeling scout and whisked away to Paris a week later. Within a year her image could be found in nearly every major French and German magazine. A broken heart led her to New York, where she also appeared in Cosmopolitan, Elle, Mademoiselle, Glamour and other leading publications.

Jacqueline gave up her modeling career when she married Phil . A year after the couple welcomed Rory, she decided to begin working again; acting seemed a natural progression. After studying at the Lee Strasberg Studios in Los Angeles, she appeared in commercials for Miller, Chic, Suave and other top advertisers. Her first role was a short film in New York, but her public debut was a guest starring role on "Baywatch".

Jacq eventually gave up her acting career and focused her energy on her business endeavors. She started an all natural bath and body business, Medieval, after her frustration with the products available at the time. While that business began to flourish serving celebrities like Shania Twain, Lucy Liu, and Camryn Manheim, she also began Toadstool Farm Art. Jacqueline had been painting since her youth and decided to share her beautiful portraits of Faereys.

As her art career advanced, Medieval closed. Meanwhile, her love of horses led her to training and breeding them. It appears that she's finally settled on Faereys and Horses for her career!
