As an Environmental Science major, Jackie has always been interested in sustainability and making the earth a better place to live for everyone and future generations. There was an Eco-Rep flyer handed out in one of her other classes and she applied to the program as soon as she could. Jackie eventually became an Area Eco-Rep and began facilitating a cluster in Southwest and will now be facilitating a cluster in Northeast. This involves creating lessons plans, running meetings, and guiding students in how to best approach the issues of fostering sustainable behavior on campus.
In terms of sustainability, she hopes to see people become more educated and start making changes! She says, “We need to be proactive to prevent further damage to our planet. Activism is key and it starts with the Eco-Rep Program!” Outside of Eco-Rep, her favorite way to relax is baking. Her goal in life is to make a difference, in any way possible!
