She was a trustee of the Wound Care Society and later became its chair. She has recently overseen its transition to and rebranding as the Wound Care Alliance UK.

Jackie met Ellie Lindsay at a wound conference over ten years ago and has since worked closely with the Leg Club Foundation and remains committed to the ethos of Leg Clubs.
