Sunshine Jackson

Hopscotch founder Sunshine Jackson is mother to two lively girls. She has a background in editing and directing tv documentaries. Having stopped work once her second child was born, Sunshine was frustrated that she always heard about the best stuff to do with her kids just after it had happened! Hence the Hopscotch Newsletter was born.
