AKA “Jackie Bee” is the voice of the CKPM FM Community Calendar and has been living in the Tri-Cities since 2011. Born in North Vancouver, Jackie grew up in the Bahamas after her family moved to Grand Bahama Island when she was only two. Jackie is the youngest of four siblings and had an early desire to be heard and express herself. By age thirteen she started a YouTube channel well before it became popular, and had thousands of followers. Jackie feels growing up in a foreign country has made her appreciate her homeland, and it’s given her the desire to travel, and learn more about the world. Dubbed “Bahama Mama” when she returned to school in Coquitlam, she will always cherish her Bahamas life, but she’s glad to be home, and is proud of her Canadian Metis roots. Jackie has studied voice, and is an aspiring singer and guitar player. She is currently an intern editor’s assistant with TheBahamasWeekly.com, her mother’s web-based news and events portal. She is a Gleneagle graduate and volunteers with the Hoy-Scott Creek Watershed Society which works to sustain wild salmon in the area.
