Vinnie Ann “AJ” Jackson is a New Mexico native who grew up in Albuquerque’s South Valley within site of the Rio Grande. Her country upbringing prepared her to cook, clean, and raise a family. When she found herself alone and uncertain of her future after raising four children, she used every ounce of country know-how and determination she could muster to make it in her new, unconventional – and dangerous – profession. Ann was first licensed as a private investigator in 1994 and spent over 15 years working as a repossessor and process server. True to her roots, she loves to garden, quilt, and crochet, and she makes a mean green chile stew.
