She spent her summer vacations helping family gather lumber, salvaged from old houses and barns, her duties as head nail puller kept her bustling and busy at a young age. Jacky attended Brackett elementary, then Central Junior into Memorial High. Through her time spent in and skipping out of class she made many lifelong friends.

Jacky went on to work managing restaurants and bars across the greater part of Eau Claire. She prided herself on work ethic and having the ability to overcome any amount of adversity.
