Jackie has spent most of her career challenging people to express the best in themselves and most recently, she has helped women build confidence, take risks, and live more fearlessly by harnessing the transformative art of drag. Feeling creatively stifled in her own life, Jackie discovered this power first hand by creating her own female drag character and performing on stage.
Jackie is a Forbes.com contributor, and her work has frequently been featured in the media, such as the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and Advertising Age. She is an 11-year veteran of IBM, a Penn State University graduate, a Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic, and a karaoke champion.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
