Jacqueline is a criminal lawyer and works for the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service. For the past 10 years she has been a prosecutor in the Calgary Drug Treatment Court, an alternative to incarceration for addicted offenders. She knows that healthy and engaged youth are the building blocks of the healthy and engaged community where we all want to live.
Jacqueline is a Two Wheel View fan-girl. So far TWV has provided her with two (or three, who’s counting?) awesome bikes, a studded tire, and a long overdue lesson in bicycle maintenance for which her chain is most grateful. She loves to ride her bike and knows that every day is better with a bike in it. She is a devoted year-round commuter – see studded tire, above. Most recently she has been working on ramping up the KMs on her road bike, but is challenged by the clothing - particularly the shoes.
