Jackie’s Trent journey began in 2004 as she entered the first year of her undergraduate degree and lived in residence at LEC. While she started as a Philosophy major in the Concurrent Education program, she ended with an Honours BA in Sociology. Jackie then completed a MA in Sociology and after a 10-year break, she returned to graduate studies and most recently completed an MSW. Jackie returned to Trent in 2011 as a staff member. As a lifelong learner with a passion for all things holistic, Jackie has completed certifications in yoga (200hr yoga teacher), yoga nidra and meditation, holistic nutrition, aromatherapy, and she is a reiki master.
As an Academic Advisor, Jackie supports students through the various opportunities and hurdles they may encounter along their undergraduate journey. From chatting about degree requirements or changing majors, to providing support when facing challenges, working on goal setting or talking about graduate studies, the list of topics discussed in an advising appointment is almost endless! This is precisely what she loves most about advising work: getting to know students and supporting them on their academic journey.
