Jackie received a Bachelor's degree in Language Arts Education and a Master's Degree in English and Linguistics, both from Universidade Federal de Uberlândia (UFU) in Brazil. She worked in the corporate world for many years but never abandoned the role that she loved the most, teaching. She has been with OSIEL since the beginning.
Jackie taught English (EFL) to high school as well as conversational Portuguese to adults seeking to expand their knowledge for travel and to enjoy other cultures.
Jackie has 2 daughters: One starting college and another entering 10th grade. Both are representative of the creativity and positive outlook Jackie brings to OSIEL every day!
