Growing up in rural Pennsylvania, Jackie (she/her) has always had a love for learning. The outdoor world continues to satisfy her curious mind, and getting dirty has never been a problem for her. Jackie is excited to serve as WCG's Job Training Program Director and to continue working in local food systems after six years at the International Rescue Committee's Spice Kitchen Incubator program. She loves learning how food connects us to one another and how it can create a more inclusive, healthy, and happy community. Jackie possesses experience in community building and volunteer engagement, program management, and communications. In her free time, Jackie enjoys being active, spending time with her dog Panda and cat Freda, and eating a good meal.
