Jackie started playing in the SCA in 1988 while she was stationed on Guam. Her first event was Solstice 1989 with the Lost Canton on the World's Edge in the Kingdom of the West. She was the founding Seneschal. Jackie was looking for a Dungeon's and Dragon's group and saw a bunch of people sitting around wearing garb and weapons. She went over and started talking to them and got wrapped up in the game. She started out as a "stick jockey" and has expanded her interests after that. When she left Guam, she landed in Kingman, AZ, and found no SCA group there. Along with several others, founded the Shire of Windale as the seneschal. Jackie is the wife of his Lordship Gefroi Le Gris.

Initially Jackie started out with hard suit and she had ambitions of being a knight. However, as she learned more about the SCA her interest changed. Jackie does needlework, cooking and "dabbling." She is very dedicated to doing service both by taking offices and with giving back to her barony and kingdom. Jackie enjoys trying new things and adventures.

Jackie is a part of the Manoir de la Blanche Fleur (aka Manor Rose) and is a founder and Matriarch of the Household.

Jackie is Pelican in the SCA and she is also belted to a laurel, Mistress Alianora Alexandra da Lyshåret. She is wanting to get back to doing more cooking. Her passion is to encourage new people in the SCA to find their interests.

What's in a Name

Jacquelin de Normandie - she always loved the name Jacquelin and felt like it was a strong female name. When she was on Guam and the seneschal most of the people there were Saxon, so she decided to use the last name of "de Normandie" to show that she was ruling over all the Saxon's in her canton (at the time). Also the garb was easy to make, T-Tunics and Gates of Hell.

Persona

Jackie's persona is 10th century Norman. Her father is Baron Nooka who was a Danish Viking and her mother is Baroness Gilda Nookaswife, a French lady.

Heraldry Story

Jackie just really liked the embattlement. Her favorite colors are blue and white. Her white rose represents her and the 3 blue roses represents her 3 girls. Jackie has always felt that she has an affinity to roses.
