Her diverse experience also includes teaching floriculture to high school students, translating for trans-continental video conferences, and "refereeing" between engineering, quality control, and sales for a large computer company.

Asked what she likes most about working at ITR Economics, Jacqueline said, “I love the people – the fact that everyone gets along and the kindness and respect that is the norm. I like the atmosphere and the ‘we are all in this together’ attitude.”
