Jackie performs in a variety of situations, playing for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients, bedside for homebound critical patients   and larger audiences in assisted living facilities. Her specialty is playing in hospice care where family, professional staff and bedside patients can enjoy the tender sound of the cello aimed at palliative care rather than performance.
