Jackie is the communication specialist for the Chicago Automobile Trade Association and
the 2011 Chicago Auto Show. Bringing to the team a wide range of communication and
writing experience from around the globe, she is excited to not only be part of the largest auto show in the nation but also to re-establish herself in the Chicagoland area.
After earning degrees in English Literature and in Writing from the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois, Jackie spent time living both in Boston, as a graduate student at Boston University, and abroad in the United Kingdom. While in London, Jackie finished her Master's
in Communication and worked at a mid-sized PR agency in the city's Islington neighborhood. Returning to the states, Jackie interned with Weber Shandwick in Chicago, a top global PR agency, before joining the 2011 Chicago Auto Show team.
Jackie is currently commuting from Crystal Lake, Illinois to CATA's Oakbrook office in her 2000 Mercury Cougar. She spends her free time practicing yoga, cheering for the Chicago Bears and browsing www.drivechicago.com for her next car.
