Fackler will also serve the remainder of an unfilled term until 2025. She earned her law degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2009. Before joining Baptist Health System in 2022, Fackler spent 13 years at Akerman LLP, where she was a partner in the firm’s Bankruptcy and Reorganization department.

Fackler is the former chair of the Jacksonville Bankruptcy Bar Association and the Bankruptcy Law Educational Series Foundation.

In December 2023, The Florida Bar Foundation changed its name to FFLA. Posts prior to this date contain our former name.
