During her career, Jacquelyn has created programs that afforded unique opportunities for those who are disadvantaged and disenfranchised.  As a result of the local school district instituting a zero-tolerance policy, Jacquelyn created the SAFE Program that ensured over 500 students remained current and timely with their schoolwork and provided mentoring and tutoring.  Jacquelyn also created a pilot Cyber School program for students who needed a non-traditional style of learning.  She then turned her attention to the prison system and created the Returning Citizens Ministry where she served as an advocate for inmates in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.  Jacquelyn is currently employed as an Executive Assistant to the President and Vice-President at Alliance For Justice.
