I AM A DAUGHTER OF MARSHALL.

From Willow Wood, OH, Jackie is planning on becoming a K-3 teacher. She says her favorite spot on campus is the pathway between Old Main and Smith Hall, but outside of campus, she loves Pullman Square. When she’s not in her favorite class (Children’s Literature and Language), she can be found hiking, doing yoga, kayaking, reading, and cooking. She says, “don’t be afraid to push yourself out of your comfort zone and do things that make you nervous. That’s often what you need to do to grow and become the best version of you!” Jackie has watched “Friends” so many times that she can, and often does, quote every episode. But she hasn’t finished the live-action remake of “Dumbo” because anything remotely heart-warming or sad makes her cry instantly.
