Prior to joining the faculty at Columbia University, in the early 1990s Dr. Parker was the founder and director of the Program in Gender, Sexuality and Health at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, which has been nationally and internationally recognized as the leading sexuality research and training program in Brazil. In 2002, Dr. Parker also founded, and has since co-chaired, Sexuality Policy Watch (formally named the International Working Group on Sexuality Research until 2006). He is also one of the Founding Editors of the journal, Culture, Health and Sexuality, which began publication in 1999 and has become one of the leading international journals for sexuality research, with by far the most multi-cultural editorial board and publication record of any sexuality journal in the world. Jackie became an Advanced Skills Teacher in 1999, training many teachers and school leaders across the UK in techniques for transforming learning and developing Emotional Intelligence. In 2002 Jackie received an OBE for services to education for her work in developing Learning to Learn initiatives and for leading national training for AST's. She then went on to become Headteacher of Campion School, Northamptonshire. In 2004, this large comprehensive school achieved a very good Ofsted report under her leadership.

She has also written several publications linked to transforming learning, including her latest books 'The Learner's Toolkit' and 'The Primary Learner's Toolkit' both full of materials to help teachers deliver lessons in social and emotional intelligence (SEAL) and to help develop independent learners.
