Jacquie Wiviott's maternal great-grandparents were born in Turkey (Canakkale and Rodosto/Tekirdag) and became involved in the Sephardic community upon moving to Seattle. In addition to enjoying the Sephardic holiday (and of course food) traditions that her family has kept through the generations, Jacquie also grew up in a Spanish immersion program since kindergarten so the Sephardic culture and ladino language have always appealed to her. She has contributed to the Jewish community in a variety of volunteer and leadership capacities for over a decade. Jacquie co-founded The Tribe, Temple De Hirsch Sinai’s (TDHS) 20s and 30s group. Following her term as co-chair, Jacquie’s service to the Jewish community included serving on The Tribe Steering Committee, the TDHS Board of Trustees, and the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle’s PAVE (30s and 40s group) committee. Jacquie was awarded the Jack J. and Charlotte Spitzer Young Leadership Award for 2016 by the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle. She earned her B.S. in Business Administration in international business from the University of Denver and during that time also studied abroad at the Universidad de Salamanca in Spain. Jacquie has worked with Vistex, a marketing software company, since 2015 where she is a Senior Client Manager focusing on customers in the high-tech arena. Prior to Vistex, Jacquie worked as a consultant for Microsoft, supporting co-marketing initiatives with one of Microsoft's largest partners managing multi-million dollar investments through the distribution and retail channels.
