Jackie

I am Jackie a Ferris State University grad. I spent my time at Ferris running on the varsity cross country and track team, Even though I am out of college I still am a crazy runner girl. I have done 5 marathons, and plan to do many more! I began my career in broadcast when I was 24 and interned at Free Beer and Hot Wings in the Morning. That is where I got the incredibly accurate nick name of "Jackie Man Voice" or "JMV." From there I worked weekends on GRD and Channel 957 for a while until I was moved up to nights. I hosted the nightly Rocktagon for 2 years before I was moved again to where I am today, midday's (10-3 M-F) I like to read more than anyone should, I am a musical theatre nut, I cosplay, dabble in pageants, and have a geek side a mile long. I am very active and I have a rare ability to go out and be crazy, and still get up hung over as all get up and go for my run... My favorite band ever is Shinedown I love them! Catch me stumbling around Grand Rapids at our many GRD concerts and events. Of course you can also hear me Monday through Friday, 10AM to 3PM on GRD!

My Attempt At Making Harry Potter “Butter Beer”

Yes you read the title correct, I attempted to make butter beer. It was a success! If you are a nerd like me and have read Harry Potter then you have heard of Butter Beer. The other night my friend Ginny and I, (yes her name is Ginny... like that?) were bored and decided to see if we could make our own butter beer.

I Finally Got To Meet Jason Segel

For the past few weeks, they have been filming "The End Of The Tour," starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel.

They are filming this movie right in our building. So, you would think I would have found a way to meet the two actors by now.

Nope. None of my hair-brained schemes have worked.

So, of course yesterday when I was NOT planning on seeing anyone cool, but I did.

Parents Lip Sync to Disney’s ‘Frozen’

This video is making the rounds online and I thought it was too funny!

I know a few people who have kids right now and they are all obsessed with Disney's "Frozen."

That, I will not deny, is a pretty awesome movie.

These parents cracked me up with their lip sync to one of the songs off the movie. The best is their daughter in the backseat, and she's clearly oblivious to what's going on.

Jackie At Barracks 616

You may remember my New Years Resolutions this year. One of them was to get my concealed weapons license. Thanks to Barracks 616 I am well on my way!

Last night I took my first class where I learned the basics of shooting, I have awful aim, so if you plan on breaking in to my house any time soon, remember I may NOT be trying to kill you but I could accidentally....
