“PULSE has inspired me to reach more into the community I live in, and to actively search out opportunities because there is just so much available to us.”
Jacqueline Journeay, originally from Alameda, California, received her degree in Anthropology from San Francisco State University. Prior to joining PULSE, she served for two years as an Education & Youth Facilitator with the Peace Corps in Dornod, Mongolia, where she implemented a variety of community and youth development projects. In her free time, Jacqueline enjoys backpacking, camping, rock climbing, baking cookies, and spending time with friends and family.

William: How has PULSE inspired you to live/think/act differently?
Jacqueline: It has inspired me to reach more into the community I live in, and to actively search out opportunities because there is so much available to us. It is a mutually beneficial relationship because there is so much given to us, but there is also so much for us to give.
William: What have you enjoyed most about living in community? How have you and your housemates pushed/encouraged one another?
Jacqueline: They have encouraged me to step outside of my comfort zone and have encouraged me to attend events that I wouldn’t otherwise attend.
William: What have you enjoyed most about your nonprofit partnership?
Jacqueline: Giving money to nonprofit organizations and charities. It makes me happy!
William: What’s your favorite “family meal” recipe for the house?
Jacqueline: Crock pot quiche is the way to go! Really, anything in the crock pot… but I’d say quiche because it’s the BEST!
William: How do you like to spend your morning and evening commute?
William: What are three words you would use to describe your PULSE year so far?
Jacqueline: Develop (or Learn). Explore. Interconnection.
