School Program Coordinator

Jackie was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, where her love of nature and science started from backyard adventures in the prairie and looking at the local pond water under a microscope. Jackie received degrees from Miami University in Life & Earth Science Education and Biology, and holds a Colorado Teacher's License in 7-12th grade Science. In her free time, she loves backpacking, camping, sitting around a campfire, fostering dogs, and napping in hammocks. Her favorite thing about working at Cal-Wood is the growth she sees in each student from their first day to their last day at Cal-Wood, as well as the incredible diversity in the ecology and landscape throughout the seasons.
