Jackiee Carbery | Project Specialist, West Region
Office: Los Angeles, California
Arlington Heights, Illinois
Indiana University – Bloomington (Hoo-Hoo-Hoo-HOOSIERS!)
Proudest moment of my career:
When Southwest Airlines grounded hundreds of flights the day of our Charlie Orientation and my team and I managed to get our attendees to Minneapolis ANYWAY!
Job Prior to The Mission Continues:
Something much worse than what I do now – this job is a dream.
Favorite winter activity:
As much as I love sledding (and don’t do it nearly enough) I have to be honest and say snuggling up on the couch with a warm blanket, cup of hot chocolate and a stack of books! If my house had a fireplace, that’d be going, too.
Book on my nightstand:
“The Never List” by Koethi Zan (or some other dark and twisty novel).
Equal parts Fight Club and Despicable Me. Good luck figuring that out.
Favorite sports team:
DA BULLS and IUBB – I have a thing for good teams with a lot of drama.
Most rewarding thing about working at The Mission Continues:
Every person is essential to our vision. Every person has a hand in creating lasting community impact. Every person matters.
Watching reality TV (Okay, Dance Moms) with a big bowl of ice cream.
Song that describes me:
“Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap
My most overused phrase:
“Where’s my stress ball?”
Item on my bucket list:
Cruise from the U.S. to Australia!
Who would I dine with (dead or alive):
My beautiful mother, Gillian Flynn, Heath Ledger, Taylor Swift, Michael Jackson, Steve Carrell, Jim Carrey.
