Jackie serves as Indiana Humanities’ communications manager and spends her time overseeing IH’s social media strategy while also developing innovative ways to cultivate relationships and drive engagement across digital spaces. Jackie is an alumna of the International Center’s Jim Morris Global Leadership Series and was recently recognized as a “woman to watch” by local lifestyle resource, Indy Maven. 

As a second-generation American, Jackie is familiar with exploring the cultural and historical nuances of her own dual identity. Her lived experience motivates her to ask critical questions and examine the ways in which we find belonging. She believes the intersection between technology and humanities serves as a bridge to connect people, places and communities. 

When she’s not working, Jackie spends her time building relationships with the people in her life. In her free time, she volunteers with GrassRoot Projects and can also be found nursing a variety of hobbies like reading, drawing, playing musical instruments and cooking.
