Jacq has predominantly worked as an accountant, auditor, project manager and teacher but has more lately switched her working life towards the things she is most passionate about which include keeping herself and others fit and healthy.

She works for British Rowing as a Coach Educator teaching the Level 2 qualification and the Eastern Region Rowing Council where she is a Club and Coach coordinator. This involves working with the in-land sliding seat and coastal fixed-seat rowing clubs to ensure that coaches are well qualified and clubs are running smoothly. She is currently the captain of the Deben Rowing Club in Woodbridge and the founder of the soon to be, Woodbridge Coastal Rowing Club.

Recently Jacq could be seen coxing Sae Wylfing, the half length Anglo-Saxon replica, up and down the river Deben for the very successful local film, Life on the Deben. and her experience of rowing and steering the smaller replica will become invaluable when the larger ship has been constructed.

Jacq has been project managing the team and offers skills in Social media, web development and organisation.

There is more than one epic voyage on the horizon for Jacq as apart from looking forward to the day that she can navigate the Anglo-Saxon ship down the river Deben she is also rowing the Atlantic just to show that you are ‘Never too old to’.
