About the President and Founder


January 2014, Jackie Vernon-Thompson, Founder and President of From the Inside-Out School of Etiquette, LLC. was inspired to create a school that teaches youth to perform at their optimum. In our fast-paced society, there is a definite need for this service.

Jackie has earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Business focusing on Communications. She is also a two time Certified Etiquette Consultant for the International community. Jackie has conducted etiquette skills and self-enhancement workshops for youth, both boys and girls, in the urban and suburban communities at schools and various organizations for many years and is blessed with the ability to meet each youth where they are in order to be effective.

From the Inside-Out School of Etiquette works with each youth internally, with their attitude, what they thinks of themselves, the standards they set for themselves and any self-inflicting faults created. Once those concerns and others are addressed, there is a strong possibility they will be a changed person, for the better, from the inside out.

Jackie also offers Business Etiquette, Communicating effectively, Chivalry, Sitting/Walking Gracefully, and Table Etiquette Workshops to adults. They too can be in the position to sharpen their knowledge of etiquette skills in various areas and become more refined.

In March 2017, Jackie was an honoree for the City of Lauderhill, Third Annual Women’s History Month. In 2018 she was also recognized as A Woman of Distinction by the City of Lauderhill Kiwanis Club. Jackie prides herself in giving back to the community. She believes in paying it forward.

Jackie also believes in philanthropy and has, in many cases, shared her gift of teaching etiquette and self-enhancement classes at various venues. It is her goal that every lesson taught will resonate with each student for life, whether it is a child or an adult.

Clearly, her passion and expertise can be of benefit to everyone regardless of gender and age. The youngest she serves is age 6 and the oldest is 99.

Jackie is eager and enthused to help each student perform at their optimum level.
