Selections & Client Manager, Arbiter of Jokes
“I enjoy creating systems to keep things organized. And occasionally cracking a joke.”
Jackie has been with TDS since May 2017, and in her time here she has worn many hats! Currently, she’s helping define the selections process as well as managing many internal systems and duties. Prior to her time at TDS, Jackie owned and operated a small ceramics company, Toast Ceramics, for 5 years. While she mostly operates her business ceramics on the side now, it continues to teach her the back end of business operations and marketing on a small scale. Creating systems to help things run smoothly is crucial to running her business and gives her unique skills to assist TDS. In addition to her business knowledge, Jackie is passionate about her home and creating efficient and functional spaces without sacrificing unique style. She’s done a lot of her home improvements herself and finds air-sealing and insulating fascinating!
Jackie grew up in Wisconsin and has learned to appreciate its under-the-radar quality to other places she’s lived and traveled. In her spare time, she likes to hike with her partner and two huskies around the state, garden in her large flower and vegetable beds, and create with her hands—from making pottery and reupholstering furniture, to cooking meals and installing flooring.
