Early life and education
David Jackson and Heidi Jackson welcomed Hallie Marie Jackson into the world on April 29, 1984, in Yardley, Pennsylvania, in the United States. She was nurtured by a single father in a suburb of Pennsylvania, but other than that, there isn’t much to say about her early years and family.
Hallie Jackson attended Pennsburg High School before enrolling at Johns Hopkins University, where she became interested in the women’s movement and the sorority club before earning a political science degree in 2006.
It was no surprise that she chose to pursue a degree that matched her passion, given her political activism at school.

In 2006, she worked as a reporter for the first time for WBOC-TV, where she reported on events in towns like Salisbury, Maryland, Dover, and Delaware.
