She was named associate athletics director for development and annual giving in August 2003 after serving as an assistant athletics director for five years. While working in Development, she worked to ensure the advancement of annual donations through Cougar Pride, the fundraising arm of the Athletics Department.

She led capital campaigns, annual giving drives, chaired committees for some of the community's most successful events, supervised hundreds of volunteers and worked closely with UH's athletics program on several earlier projects.

Jackson was a founding member of VICTORY, the fund-raising arm of the American Cancer Society and held leadership positions and administered events for the Texas Surgical Society, West University Little League and St. John's School.

She has been honored several times for her service activities, including the Volunteer of the Year for the Kelsey Seybold Foundation in 1997, Citizen of The Year for West University Place in 1994 and Special Achievement Award (1995) and Lady of the Knight Award (1992) from Episcopal High School.

Jackson earned her bachelor's degree in art history from the University of Houston in 1989, graduating summa cum laude. She was a member of the National Honor Society and Phi Kappa Phi.
