Learn More About Jackie

Most enjoyable aspect of Jackie’s role:
I enjoy helping students decide on future career paths. Whether it is helping you  explore careers, get started on a path, or even change careers, I enjoy working with you to figure out your best option. 

Jackie’s educational path:
I wanted to become a journalist ever since I was in high school. I attended UW-Madison with the intent of graduating with a degree in Journalism. It was not until I started writing for the college newspaper my sophomore year that I realized I didn’t enjoy the work as much as I thought I would. I also hated my first Journalism class. I changed my major and it wasn’t until I got involved in volunteering at a small non-profit that I discovered my passion for education. I am currently pursuing my master’s in Counseling at Lakeland University.

It’s important to work with an Admissions Advisor because:
We help you understand the items required for admission to the college, as well as the details about the programs and degrees we offer. You need to understand exactly what you are signing up for when you come to LTC. 

Jackie’s career path:
After graduating from college, I worked in hospitality. During that time, I volunteered at a small health education center focused on recruiting students to healthcare careers. Through that experience I got involved in student recruitment and realized I wanted to work in education. Since then, I’ve held positions within non-profits and Lakeshore Technical College. 

Familiarity with the LTC district:
I moved to the Manitowoc area in 2012. I grew up in a southern suburb of Milwaukee and attended UW-Madison.

Jackie’s advice to prospective students:
It’s really important to explore careers and gain some experience prior to making a decision on a career and college. Touring a lab on campus, job shadowing at a company, or speaking directly with an instructor can help you decide. A college has to “feel right” to you and one of the best ways is to step foot on campus, ask lots of questions, and envision yourself as a student.
