Meet our Young Adult Coordinator: Ms. Jacqueline

 

Ms. Jacqueline is a native of Luzerne County, and consequently enjoys good pizza.  She is even more enthusiastic about good books and helping her community.  After graduating from Wyoming Area school district, she received a Bachelor’s degree in History from Wilkes University. Although history is a passion for Ms. Jacqueline, she enjoys Young Adult literature and helping teens navigate through the world. She currently has no children, but two very bold cats that cause almost as much trouble as toddlers.
