Kristy Jackson

Career Programs Coordinator

Began at Teachwell:


What or who most inspires you?

Helping others find those aha moments, and helping them take action when they occur, inspires me.

Why did you choose this field?

I stumbled upon the career development field during grad school when I spent an afternoon at my campus career center, seeking out a summer internship.   I decided to create my own internship – right there. 

What was your favorite subject in school?

Psychology, writing, Spanish, computers, business.

How do you hope to make a difference?

I hope my work makes it a little easier for teachers, students, and the business community to navigate each other’s worlds & see overlapping interests & goals, and new possibilities.  I also hope to make a difference by helping schools figure out how to embed the career development process into their students’ academic experience.

What is your background? Experience, degrees, skills, etc.?

Master’s degree in Counseling/ Student Affairs, Bachelor’s degree in English Ed with Minors in Psychology & Gifted Education. I formerly ran career services programs at a liberal arts college and at a technical university, worked as a human resources manager, freelance writer, and English/psychology teacher.
