Jackie loves helping nonprofits and businesses make a plan for effective marketing and see it through to success—day by day, year to year.
Prior to co-founding Yodelpop, she worked for many years as director of communications for a national nonprofit in strengthening families and preventing child abuse, and then as a communications consultant. She helped dozens of valuable organizations create positive social change with their branding, messages, and design. She was pretty sure she had it made.
Then she met creative goddess Camille Winer, and they decided to form a team that could meet all of their clients’ needs. She started working in a real office with an in-suite bathroom, microwave, and magical jar of jelly beans that, despite being eaten from, never seemed to get any emptier.
Jackie has been a contributing writer for The Onion and plays upright bass in the bluegrass band Pay the Devil. She has an MFA in writing (poetry) and a BA from Mount Holyoke College. She serves on the board of the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee and on the planning committee for the national American Marketing Association Nonprofit Conference. She's an avid Iyengar yoga practitioner, and she lives in Milwaukee with her husband, their two daughters, and their very large German shepherd–lab mix.
