She is in training she says to be like Rosario except she can't sing. 


Always smiling and also a hard worker. Still getting to know Jackie as she is our newest employee. Ready to take on each day and take care of all our guests at Little Italy.

Assist Rosario with prep work in kitchen and assist girls in front as needed. Doing a great job.


Salad and sandwich bar, dinning room to make sure you have what you need for your table, or you might see her pop in to help with a dinner. Proud mom of two. Part time help, full time teacher at private Christian school. When school starts back will work occasionally days, mostly dinners as her full time teaching will take priority.
