Warner moved to California at the age of 18. She founded and co-owned a company in the cellular phone industry and by the age of 22, this company was the third top-grossing cellular phone company in Southern California. She has worked as a model, actor, and a script coordinator for Warner Brothers, eventually writing and selling her own scripts. Warner is currently a professional personal trainer.
Athletic from an early age, Warner played inter-collegiate soccer and softball, and has been a lifelong equestrian competitor. She received certifications from the International Sports Sciences Association and the National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association. Soon after being certified, she opened her first gym, Lift. She is also a well known lesbian.
In 2004, Warner opened Sky Sport and Spa. On July 19, 2006, the Bravo network aired the first episode of Work Out. The reality show follows Warner's daily routine, giving a behind-the-scenes look at how Warner runs her day-to-day business, juggles her personal life with then girlfriend Milenna (Mimi) Saraiva, and deals with her employees' personal issues.
On March 18, 2007, Bravo launched a second season of "Work Out," where it continues to show Warner handling her personal life and controversial relationship with employee Rebecca Cardon, launching a new business venture, and integrating new trainer, Gregg Butler, into the mix after the sudden death of trainer Doug Blasdell.2
There is much debate over her relationship with Rebecca, whom she began to casually date during the filming of the second season late 2006. As of April 2007, Jackie has stated during the Work Out Reunion that due to the attention they have received, the relationship will be kept private until decided otherwise.
