Jackie moved to eastern Washington as a child from South Korea. As a mixed-race youth immigrating to a community that didn’t provide many social service supports for families, she knew she wanted to focus her education and eventual career to give back in support of immigrants, youth, and families in need.
Jackie’s role as Seattle Program Officer for Magic Cabinet is complemented by nearly two decades working in nonprofit development, communications, and marketing. Jackie lives by her favorite quote on what truly drives community: “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King
In her free time, you’ll find Jackie entertaining at home on ‘Jdock’ with her senior cat Hammy, ‘forest bathing’ in the beautiful Pacific NW woods, volunteering with local arts or animal welfare agencies, or taking her 95-year-old grandmother on adventures. Jackie holds BAs in International Studies and Political Science and is pursuing a Masters in Public Administration.
