Jacki is very excited to join the DFO; "I have a strong passion to help improve the lives of children.

She advocated for and helped The Knight Cancer Institute raise the $500,000,000 goal, which was completed in twenty-two months. Jacki is part of the steering committee for Medical Teams International's annual fundraiser, The Great Adventure. Currently, Jacki is the founder and President of The Gallo Group, LLC, which provides comprehensive family office consulting services to high-net worth families, as well as to private charitable foundations.
