As a native Californian, Jacque grew up in the sunshine of Sonoma County and the quirky streets of San Francisco.
She began her wrestling career at 12. Falling in love with it immediately, she quit her eight-year long stint with gymnastics and started dedicating as much time as she could on the mat. Wrestling through high school, Jacque was a multiple-time regional and sectional champion, as well as a two-time state placer.
Choosing to continue her career at a collegiate level, she began her first three years wrestling under Lee Allen at Menlo College and concluded her final year with a 7th place national finish under her new coach/mentor, 2004 Olympian Marcie Van Dusen.
After graduating with her BA in Liberal Arts, Jacque took time to travel through Europe only to return home to Sonoma County where she eagerly became involved in coaching at multiple local high schools.
Now an ecstatic new member of the Beat the Streets New York team, Jacque is really excited to help expand both the girls and boys programs, as well as build awareness of the Beat the Streets mission. She is on her third year with Beat the Streets. Mostly, she wants credit to be given to the amazing kids of BTS who come in every day, ready and willing to challenge and better themselves, especially when they don't have to.
