Jackie McGoey

Digital Content Manager

Chicago native Jackie McGoey is the proud momma of daughter Eden, a little princess who is equal parts silly and sweet. Although "free time" is practically non-existent in her world, Jackie hopes to one day find the time to write her first children's book and go on more dates with her husband Jason. She is an alumna of both the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Northwestern University - where she holds a Master's degree in Journalism from the Medill School.
