Jackie obtained her undergraduate degree in health services and a master’s degree in occupational therapy from the University of Indiana, working for two years in orthopedics in Indiana and three years for Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Achieving her lifelong dream, she then earned her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, a program known for its curriculum with a strong surgical emphasis.

Jackie is a nationally board certified Physician Assistant. With a passion for surgery, she began her career as certified surgical technologist (CST) with an associate’s degree in surgical technology. Jackie gained over 10 years of experience in the operating room.

While employed at Le Bonheur, Jackie’s focus consisted of childhood developmental delays and orthopedic deformities secondary to birth defects. Simultaneously, from 2012-2014, she assisted an orthopedic surgeon for over two years after achieving her Surgical Assisting Certification from the Royal Academy of Surgical Assisting.

Today she is a physician assistant working with Dr. Jason Zook, with a focus on, but not limited to, orthopedic spine treatment.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, exploring Asheville, watching college basketball and football, and outdoor activities such as snow boarding and golf. She was born and raised in Indiana and looks forward to meeting new patients, caring for established patients from diagnosis to recovery.
