About Jacqueline




Jacqueline Chartier is a freelance journalist as well as a nonfiction writer and blogger.  Her work has been widely published throughout Canada. Jacqueline was born in northern Ontario, but moved to Alberta with her parents as a small child. The family lived first in Cold Lake and then relocated to Calgary around the time that Jacqueline was old enough to begin school. As a child she always enjoyed reading, English and social studies quickly became her favourite subjects. Jacqueline would go on to earn a bachelor of arts in English literature from the University of Calgary as well as an undergraduate degree in the field of journalism from Mount Royal University.


Jacqueline’s career was launched in the 1990s. Her many years of experience have seen her write for a wide variety of publications as well as for government and non-profit agencies. Her journalistic interests include arts and culture, history and heritage and the Canadian military. More recently she has become involved with issues surrounding medicine and health care. Jacqueline’s sudden health crisis, an ovarian cancer diagnosis in 2011, has been extremely significant in both her personal and professional life.
