Jacquie has been coaching diving since 2007. She started under the direction of her college coach at the University of Akron. Jacquie didn't start diving until she was 14 years old. As a level 9 gymnast, she was injured and thought that diving was the next best thing! It turned out to be a great transition. After college she moved to Greensboro, NC where she was the head coach of Ultimate Air diving. In 2017, she moved to Raleigh to begin Red Wolf Elite. She has taught beginner divers basic progressions and safety as well as national level divers.  Jacquie has also helped many divers through the recruiting process for college.
