Raised in a working middle class family outside of Philadelphia, Jaclyn was the second of 3 children born within 15 months of each other. This began her search in finding many creative ways to stand out from a young age! Her early years were spent between acting classes, improv groups, athletics, and later theater, traveling monologue groups, and the debate team.
After graduating from Penn State University with a degree in Marketing, Jaclyn continued her training at some of the best acting conservatories in both NYC, Boston and now Florida and Georgia. Jaclyn has studied with renowned acting teachers, Seth Barrish and Lee Brock - acting teachers to Anne Hathaway, as well as the famed Larry Moss. She has acted and/or starred in close to 30 independent films, student films, tv shows, commercials, and industrials. After commuting between NYC and Boston to both work in film/tv and study at such prestigious institutions as HB Studio and the Barrow Group, Jaclyn made the move south. Jaclyn is currently studying and serving as a teaching assistant at Class Act in Orlando, FL as well as serves on the marketing committee for Film Florida.
