7 Things You Didn’t Know About Jackie Fuller

7 Things You Didn’t Know About Jackie Fuller
With roots in the Bay Area, this former RA eventually settled into her role as Advising and Recruitment Specialist at SDSU. While her experience as an RA led her to her future career, her undergraduate university actually inspired her future dog’s name. Read more on this edition of 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Faculty and Staff to find out what alma mater her Puggle was named after!

1. Jackie is a huge musical theater fan.  
There is something so impressive and magical about a big, musical stage production. Some of her all-time favorite shows are Wicked and Hamilton.

2. Spud-tacular
She thinks the potato is the perfect food. Fried, mashed, or baked… Jackie can’t get enough of the starchy spud.

3. Bay Area Native
Jackie grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area- Hayward, to be exact. She lived there until starting graduate school in her early 20’s. Her whole family still lives in Northern California, but they love to come visit her in sunny San Diego!

4. Jackie was an RA in college at Santa Clara University.  
Her Res Life experiences lead her to pursue a career in Higher Education Student Affairs.  She actually moved to San Diego to earn her MA in student affairs at SDSU!

5. It’s tea time! 
Although she is a huge Starbucks fan, she doesn’t drink coffee!  Instead, she enjoys their many tea options. Trenta green iced tea, sweetened is her go-to.

6. Princess Pooch
Jackie has a very spoiled dog named Clara (named after her undergraduate alma mater Santa Clara University). She is a 19 pound puggle (a pug/beagle mix) with the cutest underbite.

7. Her heart will go on 
Jackie’s favorite movie of all time is Titanic.  She saw it three times in the theater during opening weekend in 1997 and can honestly say that she has seen it hundreds of times on VHS!

How Jackie is Making a Difference…

“I get to do such an exciting variety of things in my role as Advising and Recruitment Specialist in the College of Education at SDSU. Whether it’s recruiting a prospective student, advising a current student, or helping facilitate a college event like commencement- my goal is always to listen and, to the best of my ability,  give each person the individual support they need to achieve academic success. My hope is that students I have positively impacted will pay it forward and continue to encourage and support those who they advise, educate or mentor.”
