Jacki is always on the go. From youth run clubs to Fitness Warriors classes, more often than not you can find her out in the community. She works with a team to manage our youth programs. She does everything from sizing kids for shoes, to meeting with our coaches, to leading training days. She listens to what the community is saying, maintains relationships, and serves as a liaison between the community and our organization. On the weekends Jacki loves spending the day with her daughter, Kasadi, and enjoying a run with one of our training teams in the morning. The Richmond Marathon was her first marathon and now holds a special place in her heart. She loves getting to be out on the course cheering on runners. She earned her BS in Psychology at Radford, and later went back to school to get her Masters in School Counseling. She has her Group Fitness Instructor certification through the American Council on Exercise (ACE) and is in the process of becoming a Behavior Change Specialist through ACE.

What did you want to be when you “grew up”: “A doctor! Until I started pre-med at VCU and worked at the Massey Cancer Center – that’s when I realized that I do want to help people but not necessarily as a physician.”
