Jacquelyn joined the United States Attorney’s Office in January 2008, and was appointed to the Business and Securities Fraud Section in March 2013.  In September 2014, Jacquelyn was appointed as the Deputy Chief of the General Crimes Section, and in November 2015, she became the Deputy Chief of the Business and Securities Fraud Section.  She was appointed Chief of the Business and Securities Fraud Section in April 2017.  She has investigated and prosecuted a wide variety of criminal matters, including market manipulation, fraud involving publicly-traded companies, investment adviser fraud, tax crimes, money laundering and violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the Bank Secrecy Act.
