Jacque is a native Virginian, but calls North Carolina her second home after spending nearly 20 years in Raleigh. She attended St. Mary’s College for two years then graduated from the School of Design at NC State University with a degree in visual design. She started her advertising career as a graphic designer and art director at various advertising agencies in Raleigh, and then later transitioned to the promotional products industry after working with a distributor on artwork for a promotional order. Now, more than 26 years later, she still loves the excitement and challenges of her work. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and exploring new places, cooking, riding bikes on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach, playing mah-jongg, and walking or hanging out on the beach with close friends and her Aussie Labradoodle, Poppy.
