Jackie developed her passion for the environment amid the beautiful redwood forest of Northern California. In a small, environmentally conscious college town where she attended Humboldt State University, it was easy to ride the bandwagon of sustainability. But when she returned home to San Diego, she knew she would have to go the extra mile to keep her love for the natural world healthy and happy. Since then, she has devoted herself to spreading awareness about environmental issues and working with some of San Diego's most passionate advocates to bring about solutions. Every day she finds new excitement and inspiration working with Solana Center's community of wonderful staff and volunteers to make our county an environmentally smarter and kinder place.
