Jacqueline was born and raised in Iran by an Iranian father and a British mother and has been a bridge between the East and the West since birth. An informed observer of cultural, historical, religious, and political affairs of the Middle East in general, and Iran specifically, she strives to promote relationships between people of different cultures and faiths. Jacqueline utilizes her training as a college academic and a business professional to create and present interesting speaking engagements and seminars.
Her memoir, From Miniskirt to Hijab: A Girl in Revolutionary Iran, is published (October 2019) by Potomac Books of the University of Nebraska Press. The book chronicles her life before, during, and after the Iranian Revolution and is a riveting story of fate, faith, and multiple cultural identities of a young woman in one of the most fascinating and politically turbulent parts of the world.
