Hey there, I’m Jackie!
I have been working at FIU for over 9 years now (Yes! Almost a decade folks!) and began my role as a Success Coach January 2020. Having served in key roles throughout the university, I’ve gained some valuable tricks of the trade and also a solid grasp on what resources are available to students. My super skill is that I’m easy to talk to for some good conversation and have a knack for developing meaningful relationships. I am a first generation college student and a fellow FIU Online learner, recently completing my Masters in Global Strategic Communication fully online. I understand what it is to balance life, work, and education, so I’m motivated to provide support and guidance to students. Fun random fact: I was 22 years old when I flew for the first time, which may explain why I’m making up for lost time with travel planning and daydreaming. Aside from my Masters degree, I hold a BS in Organizational Communications and a certificate in Conflict Resolution and Consensus building as well as recognized as an FIU Ignite Spark Award and FIU Torch Award recipient for FIU Online. Most importantly, I’m excited to be part of your student journey!
