Jackie’s superpower…


Having 40 years of market research experience has it’s advantages, and having been both a client and a consultant gives me a holistic view of business issues clients are studying.

World history

I’m actually an amateur historian, and I truly believe you can’t understand where you’re going, without understanding where you came from.

What Jackie loves most about IIM…

The laughter

It’s food for the soul to be surrounded by smart people with a dry sense of humor, and I’ve never laughed so hard at work.

Jackie’s secret to great research…


My work style is immersive, and I like to do a really deep dive into subjects, and focus completely on a single brand category to uncover a greater spectrum of insights.
