Jacqui grew up around the performing arts with her mother running a dance school in South Wales. Now a qualified tap dance and wheelchair dance sport instructor, Jacqui's professional performing experience comes from working as a coat-style entertainer for a number of holiday companies and touring in small scale pantomime. She still enjoys doing occasional support artist work for television and film, her favourite to date being a dead body with a big vampire bite for Being Human!

Jacqui's passion for working inclusively developed during her time working as the Administrative Support Worker for dim prob; a student volunteering group. There she was involved in a number of projects with children, teenagers and adults with learning disabilities.

Jacqui undertakes an administrative and logistics role within Hijinx Theatre.
