Jacqui feels extremely honoured to be participating in the Easter Seals fundraising event. This event is a blessing for her because it is bringing two of her passions together. Her passion and love of dancing and her many years of working with children with special abilities. Early in her career life, she worked at The Hospital for Sick Children as a Child Life Therapist, working on several wards and being in the presence of some very amazing and courageous children. It was such an honour to work with children at Sick Kids and participate in their stories and lives.
Later on, Jacqui became a Special Education Teacher in Simcoe County and has been there for over 20 years. Today, she is further blessed to be a primary grade teacher involved in the lives of kindergarten children. Her kindergarten class continues to teach her so much about life, including dancing, singing and just having fun.
Through life’s experiences, she is presently the founder of a healing centre in downtown Barrie called “The Waterview Space.” She is the author of four books and most recently is the host of “The Jacqui Dee Talk Show” out of Toronto’s ThatChannel Studio. She has met so many incredible people who have shared their journeys with her on the show.
She encourages everyone to come together and support Easter Seals. This truly is a time to make a difference in allowing everyone the opportunity to shine and reach their own special goals, dreams and wishes! “We can do this together!” says Jacqui.
