As the Director of Direct Services, Jaclyn oversees initiatives for mental health and well-being, alcohol and other drugs (AOD), health education and wellness coaching. Jaclyn initially joined the Alice! Health Promotion team as a Health Promotion Specialist in 2018. Her professional background spans over several functional areas in higher education and student affairs. Some of those experiences focus on social justice education, mental health, residence life, and leadership development. In addition, she has served as an instructor for both undergraduate and graduate populations.
Jaclyn grew up in the Golden State, California, and is excited to support student health and well-being through a trauma-informed and intersectional lens. When not at work, Jaclyn enjoys spending time with her fur-child, Captain, and being out and about exploring all that the community has to offer!
