Jaclyn has an affinity for investigations, politics and enterprise reporting. During her time at WVEC-TV, she provided continuing coverage at the Virginia State Capitol on the black face and sexual assault allegations that threatened to topple Virginia's top politicians.
Jaclyn also led multiple investigations into critical U.S. Navy shortages, which prompted officials to re-evaluate protocols and enact initiatives aimed at tackling the issues.
An avid explorer, Jaclyn loves trotting around the globe. In Peru, she reported on protesters striking against the Machu Picchu tourism industry. While in Rwanda, she conducted research on the 1994 genocide and its aftermath. Then she traveled to China where she reported on attempts to preserve minority cultures. Her last stop was in Chile where she investigated the cause of frequent sea lion deaths along the coast.
Before moving to Virginia, Jaclyn worked in Raleigh, North Carolina. She attended the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill on a full ride scholarship and graduated with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.
When she's not reporting, you can find Jaclyn attempting to cook, hanging out at her favorite breweries or planning her next solo-backpacking trip (and yes - it involves hostels).
