Jackie Steinmetz grew up in Morton, PA, and graduated from Ridley High School. She earned a B.S. in elementary education from Mansfield State College and took post graduate courses at Temple University and Penn State University. She became a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church in 1981 and has served as a Sunday school teacher, Vacation Bible School Preschool director, Christian Education committee member, deacon, and Chancel Choir member. She’s also been a part of two different church dinner groups for more than 35 years. As the chairperson of the preschool board, Jackie started Westminster’s Preschool in January 1994, and in 1998 she became the school’s director.
Jackie and her husband, Chip, have been married for 44 years and have two daughters and four grandchildren. She and Chip now live with two cats, Thumbs and Lexi, but have cared for many other cats over the years--mostly Siamese.
