JACQUELINE discovered her passion for performance at age 12 on a prairie stage at the Winnipeg Music Festival. Six years, and countless Festival performances later, she enrolled at the University of Manitoba where she completed her Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance.
After studying Art Song at the Vancouver International Song Institute, and coaching cabaret material with Broadway veterans Faith Prince and Tovah Feldshuh at the International Cabaret Conference at Yale University, Jacqueline followed her passion for musical theatre to The Boston Conservatory. Here she studied with the gifted Lisa Sheldon, and performed for director-choreographer Susan Stroman before graduating with a Master of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre.
Two-time recipient of the Jean Murray-Moray Sinclair Scholarship (RMTC), and the WISE Foundation’s Emerging Artist of the Year Award (2013), Jacqueline is a dynamic and versatile artist whose performances run the gamut of musical genres. From musical theatre, straight theatre and opera, to shaking it in a Motown cover band, Jacqueline is an adventurous performer who basks in taking risks and making bold choices.
