Jackie McKenna, a native to St. Louis, Mo. is the founder and owner of  McKenna Models and Talent LLC.

            One of eight children, Jackie began her road to success as a model at the age of twelve. Jackie was first runner-up for Miss Missouri, USA in 1966.

            After marriage, three children and a move to Los Angeles, California, she continued her path by developing herself further.

            She was signed by the Cunningham Agency and was chosen for the cover of Beverly Hills Magazine two weeks later! Shooting a commercial with Sharon Stone and Antonio Banderas was quite a highlight said Jackie. Jackie also did guest appearances with Merv Griffin, Mike Douglas and Bill Cosby and co-hosted charity events with Frank and Barbara Sinatra and Lucille Ball!

Jackie's favorite motto is "The Power is Within You!"

            Using her own philosophy of life, she went on to win the title of Mrs. Nevada 1990 and Mrs. California in 1992, and placed in the top 10 at the Mrs. America pageant , held that year for the first time in Russia.

            Understanding the need for personal guidance, Jackie has created her own company. She has worked with men, women and children, to help them develop to be the best they could be. She has guided many young models, actors, and pageant hopefuls on their road to success. Several major agencies in Los Angeles and New York have signed her talent, and they are enjoying very successful careers.

            Jackie's history and personal experience has given her first hand knowledge of what it takes to succeed in this business. Her nurturing quality makes it fun, and her connection with the industry giants has proven to be priceless!
