Jacki graduated from Northern Michigan University with a B.S. in Media Production and New Technology, and a minor in writing. While there, she had the opportunity to intern with the school's Communications and Marketing department, where she was able to practice writing campus-wide student announcements, help plan university events, and design flyers.
In the time since college, she's been working for various television stations, learning first-hand how crazy and fast-paced the world of marketing and communications can be. Jacki's at her happiest when writing commercial scripts, designing packages for sellers to take to clients, and putting out the fires that flare up on a daily basis.
To gear up for her day, Jacki grabs her running shoes and hits the streets. She feels hectic days are best tackled after a hard run, and keeps her schedule full of half marathons, 10k's, and the occasional full marathon. She thrives on pushing herself towards a goal for months, and seeing it pay off on race day.
When she's not at work or running, Jacki can be found writing commercial scripts for a few former co-workers. She also picks up work on various freelancing websites. Although she is new to the freelance writing world, she's eager to roll up her sleeves and learn everything she can.
