She is a director of Alexander Sheridan Architecture, a lecturer in design and architectural history, and Program Coordinator of the Bachelor of Architecture at Monash Art Design and Architecture. Jacqui is also a founding editor of award-winning, Melbourne and Paris-based architecture journal POST Magazine.

Recently, Jacqui has established her own design office, Alexander Sheridan Architecture, with architect Ben Sheridan, whose remit is focused largely on housing.
