Jacqui Christian, a seventh-generation descendant of Fletcher Christian, leader of the Mutiny on the Bounty, was born on Pitcairn Island and is the eldest daughter of Tom and Betty Christian.  Ms. Christian was educated on Pitcairn and in New Zealand.  After graduating from Otago University with a Bachelor of Pharmacy, she opened and operated Kanwal Pharmacy in New South Wales in the mid-1990s.  She has a keen interest in both business and health, holding qualifications in Polynesian massage and Chinese acupuncture.

After returning home to Pitcairn in 2006, Ms. Christian assisted in restructuring the government of Pitcairn Islands as both a civil servant and an elected member of the Pitcairn Island Council.  She and her partner, Leslie Jacques OBE, both of whom live on Pitcairn Island, created Pitcairn Travel to develop the Pitcairn tourism industry.
