Hi! I’m Jackie.

I am by nature a very curious person. I used that curiosity to pursue a BS in Biotechnology from Florida Southern College (2016 to 2020). When I realized that I would rather communicate interesting science than conduct it, I decided that I would ignore my love for books no longer. I began Portland State University’s Book Publishing Program in January 2022. I’m graduating with an MS in Book Publishing in June 2023, and I couldn’t be more excited to apply the knowledge and skills I have learned during my time in the program.

I’m a “Jackie-of-all-trades,” if you will.

While completing my MS, I was a project manager for Ooligan Press as well as a communications assistant for the Transportation Research and Education Center. As a result, I have extensive experience with

  • Technical writing,
  • Copyediting,
  • Developmental editing,
  • Proofreading,
  • HTML, CSS and XML coding,
  • Graphic design,
  • Blogging,
  • Social media management,
  • Website design,
  • Marketing,
  • Publicity,
  • Event planning,
  • And much more!

So what work am I looking for?

Whether I’m freelancing or working for a trade publishing press, I want to be an editor. I can imagine no job more rewarding than helping authors bring their visions, fiction or nonfiction, into the world.
