She has also directed a children’s musical and has participated in various ensembles as well performing in several musical theater productions. As a student, she participated in numerous local and state-wide music competitions, consistently placing in the top three. Growing up she enjoyed spending quality time with her grandfather, accomplished artist Earl Westrom, who taught her the basics of drawing and painting. The early exposure to music and arts
fostered a life-long passion to continue exploring the creative
process. She attends art workshops and completed a college
course on teaching early childhood art. Since 2014 Jacqueline
has been an active volunteer for LAUSD. It is her goal to
encourage others to discover their innate creativity as she
believes everyone can awaken the artist within.

crafting with her daughter, swimming, going to the beach,
writing, and editing, as well as learning about photography.
She firmly believes that exploring the arts is essential to living
a well-balanced life.
