Jackie is a graduate of Grand Valley State University. She began as the Director of the Family LIFE Center in July of 2016. "I am so excited to be a part of such an important ministry in the West Michigan area. My passion for this ministry stems form the fact that my mom had me when she was a teen. She was kicked out of high school and faced with many difficult decisions to make. I am so thankful for the amazing Christian support system that she had. Now I want to help other women in the same situation. I am living proof that a strong Christian support system can change lives for generations."
