Jacqueline is an elder law attorney at Severns & Howard, PC, where she assists clients in preparing themselves and their families to deal with disability, infirmity, and the end of life. Prior to her current employment, Jackie practiced Social Security disability law, helping clients work their way through the Social Security disability application and appeals process. In both her professional and personal life, she advocates for people dealing with disability, poverty, and lack of opportunity. She is motivated by her own life-long struggle with major depressive disorder and wants to help others, especially those with mental health issues, discover and use the strength that comes from facing disability on a daily basis. When she steps away from her mission to save the world, Jackie enjoys tae kwon do (she’s a second degree black belt), beekeeping (she’s managing to keep most of the bees alive so far), and playing guitar. She lives in Whitestown with her partner Tim and her children Tommy, Audrey, and Joey.
