Throughout the last decade Jackie has chased her passion helping others communicate within a variety of settings. Gaining experience with developmental/educational models working within the school district, early intervention and ABA programs, as well as within the medical model in home health care and clinical settings. Working alongside other amazing therapists/interventionists on multi-disciplinary teams she has grown in her ability to see each client holistically, treating communication skills as a means to true connection beyond that of just language and speech disorders.

When she's not working, you can find her connecting with her friends or nature, lost outside with her tent. Her favorite activities involve hiking with her labrador, rock climbing, mountain biking, floating on the water, dancing, singing karaoke, and yelling at football games.
