Hi there! My name is Jackie, and I am just beginning the Master in Mental Health Counseling program here at MNSU. In 2016, I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a double major in English and International Studies along with a Spanish minor. I love learning about languages, cultures, and history. I am most familiar with APA and Chicago Style, and have done my fair share of MLA as well.
I have one daughter, and I love working with other non-traditional students - I find that many non-traditional students often express shame in not knowing certain citation rules or styles, but in reality, most students have those same concerns. I believe that feeling confident and comfortable during a writing center appointment creates the best outcomes, and I hope to help writers achieve this feeling.
As far as free time, I love being with my family, reading (almost anything), hiking, and trying to keep my plants alive.
