Jackie has been an astronomy enthusiast her whole life due to her father, a TWA pilot, showing the young Jackie the night sky from their driveway in rural Overland Park.   She joined the Astronomical Society of Kansas City in 1984.  She bought her first telescope to observe Halley’s Comet in 1986, and saw her first total eclipse of the sun in Hawaii in 1991.    The Astronomical Society of KC owns Powell Observatory, built in 1985 in Louisburg, Kansas – a place where the skies are dark.   Jackie has been a team leader there for more than 25 years, having developed many of the programs for the public.    She has given countless presentations there, and all over the area to schools, libraries, civic groups, etc.   
In the late 90’s, she began leading tours all over the world to see total eclipses in locations like Greece, Aruba, Australia, Tahiti, China, and Siberia.    She has now seen 8 total eclipses, and 2 annular eclipses, and is heading for La Serena, Chile, in South America for the next one on July 2, 2019.
