Jackie graduated magna cum laude from Drexel University in 2015 with bachelor's degrees in political science and environmental studies. She has worked at FIRE ever since participating in Drexel’s cooperative education program as a program assistant. Jackie’s interest in free speech stems from her love of political satire, previous involvement in student activism, and time spent volunteering at her local library as a teen. When she is not thinking about free speech, you can find her preaching about why you should watch reality TV and B-movies instead of Oscar-winning films.
