Jaclyn has over 10 years of experience working within K-12 education where she developed and led strategic marketing and communications plans for Eden Prairie Schools and Bloomington Public Schools. As a school administrator, she helped manage some of the most pressing challenges school systems face and understands their vast complexities. Most recently, Jaclyn worked for a fellow Minnesota non-profit, Youth Frontiers, where she served as the Director of Marketing and Communications. There she helped expand partnerships with schools and donors.

Jaclyn started her career in investment banking and brings a private sector lens to her work in the public and social sectors. She has a strong passion for contributing her time and talents to student-centered, equity-focused education. 

Jaclyn’s work has received national recognition including three Gold Medallion awards for her strategic communications work — a high honor from the National School Public Relations Association. In 2012, the same organization named her one of the top 35 professionals in the nation under 35. She has earned her Accreditation in Public Relations, which demonstrates mastery in strategic communications across business sectors. 

In her personal life, Jaclyn enjoys cooking, the arts, golfing and redesigning their 1980’s “fixer-upper” home. Her greatest joy and pursuit is spending time with family.
