Jackie has spent most of her summers at camp, most likely to be found in a canoe, building campfires, or telling stories while tumping wannigans. Her years at camp have sparked her passion for connecting with people and nature. Jackie now enjoys watching campers grow up to realize their unique strengths. Her biggest takeaway is the strength of feeling acceptance, belonging and connection that a camp community provides. Jackie believes that this makes a camp culture positive and is transformative for young people. Throughout her career, Jackie has enjoyed various leadership roles and has been fortunate to work in extraordinary schools, camps and communities throughout Canada and internationally. Currently Jackie lives in Creemore, Ontario with her partner Steve, and has two daughters who are exploring the world.
