About Jacquelyn

I want to start with my favorite part of Jacquelyn's bio which really struck me and sums everything up about her so well and that is this. Jacquelyn is passionate about being the woman her husband would marry again, the mom her kids are proud of and the person her boss or customer would work with again.

Career-wise, Jacquelyn has had a three-decade career traveling the world to work with the best brands to grow businesses in new markets from scratch. With a career focused first in R&D, then consulting, and finally sales and leadership, her successful track record managing relationships with J&J, Roche, Novartis, United Airlines, Transamerica, Cisco, Bayer, Sanofi, Discover, Verizon, McDonald's, Juniper, Zurich, and Takeda make her a versatile author, speaker and saleswoman.

She is Co-Author of Sales Success Stories Volume I, a prolific speaker at Sales Success Summit and on various podcasts like Sales Success Stories, Surf and Sales, Sales Evangelist, and Your Legacy. She has spoken at UC Berkeley's Women in Science group, and was on panels for BioNetwork - Mastering the Science of Due Diligence, Elsevier - Takeda's Acquisition of Nycomed, Capital Roundtable on Private Equity in Healthcare - Legal & Regulatory Issues & Due Diligence, and with GLG and Bloomberg on ROI of Innovation. She has won numerous President's Clubs 1999 to Present, and the J&J Achievement Award for global performance above level.
