Jacqueline is also a Contributing Writer for The Bend and Inspire Coastal Bend magazines. She has a 17-year-old son, Josef, and a 13-year-old daughter, Isabella, who keep her schedule busy, but her heart full. She is also married to her best friend and soulmate, Marco. Jacqueline also has three cats: Mac, Maxie, and Loki. Jacqueline loves the chaotic nature of a busy schedule, but when she gets a bit of downtime, you can find her enjoying adventures downtown, backyard barbecues with her family, or reading a James Patterson, Kate White, or Steven King thriller. She loves 80s and 90s music, but all the time spent with her daughter has made her a huge BTS fan. Jacqueline and recently joined as a Contributor for the Corpus Christi Mom’s Blog and is excited to see what this new venture brings!
