Jackie usually introduces herself as a nurse in two centuries. Today, she is a diploma nurse graduated in 1985 from the Conemaugh Valley Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Johnstown Pa. Her love of the history of nursing can be traced to the hospitals’ connection to Clara Barton and the Great Johnstown Flood of 1898. She is currently employed by the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Her reenacting career started in 1998 at the 135th Anniversary Reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg.
