Jackie started her journey as a Schuler Scholar at Waukegan High School and attended Smith College to pursue a degree in Education & Child Study and Sociology. During her time at Smith, she took interest in learning about higher education, college access programs, and the college counseling process. As a new Scholar Coach, she is most excited about creating meaningful relationships with her students and being able to connect with them through their shared Schuler Scholar experience.
During her spare time, Jackie enjoys bike riding and long walks near lakefronts, practicing her nature photography, trying out new dessert recipes, and visiting local coffee shops.
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” — John Dewey

“So much of what we do begins with helping Schuler Scholars commit to the effort to get accepted into top colleges. From there you want them to believe that it will happen.”
