From the West Coast to the Midwest
Hi my name is Jacquelyn! I am currently a graduate student at DePaul University pursuing my master's degree in Public Relations and Advertising. I also attended DePaul for undergraduate and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor's degree in Digital Cinema with a concentration in Television Production and a minor in Marketing.
I am originally from California, so moving to Chicago was a huge leap but one that I am so happy that I made. I have been able to expand my comfort zone and allow me to grow and understand my career goals and aspirations from a new perspective. I have a passion for storytelling and I love to make people smile. I want to challenge myself everyday and create content that will bring positive impacts to society. I have a unique passion and skillset for both filmmaking and advertising, and would love to combine the two arts to tell powerful stories.
Throughout my time at DePaul, I have been a campus leader in a variety of ways. I was the Marketing Assistant and Historian for my sorority, Chi Omega, and the Marketing and Social Media Coordinator for the DePaul Men's Roller Hockey team. I studied abroad in London, England my junior year and was able to gain new perspectives on issues from students from all over the world that helped develop my own worldview. If you can't find me hard at work at DePaul's library, you'll find me either visiting Buckingham Fountain or cheering on many of the Chicago sports teams.
