Raised in New York with ties to Vermont, Jacqueline Harlow's background spans many avenues of creativity. From the fast-paced world of the fashion and music industries in New York City to the Coastal Southern vibe of local news and advertising in Wilmington, Jackie has worn many hats in the marketing, promotions, design, and advertising worlds, the most recent being advertising video producer. An avid volunteer, she has used her production and marketing skills to create fundraising videos for local non-profit organizations such as the Red Cross and Toys for Tots, which won a Telly Awards in 2009. She met Robert for the first time at the Entebbe Airport, and soon realized the story of Malayaka House would become a full-length documentary film. Jackie has also been very active in the marketing and publicity of Malayaka House, creating brochures, business cards, presentations, and press releases. She was the photographer for the project, and produced images that she used to create posters, mounted portraits of the children, and on the website. She is still actively involved with Malayaka House and has become great friends with Robert Fleming. She plans to return to Malayaka House in October of 2011, to visit with the children who now hold a very special place in her heart.
