Originally from northern Wisconsin, Jacklynn moved to Green Bay to attend University of Wisconsin—Green Bay. She started out in the healthcare field working as a personal care worker for Comfort Keepers, a home healthcare company. In 2008, she received her CNA certification. In 2009, Jacklynn started working in Appleton for Thedacare.

In 2014, Jacklynn decided to pursue a different career path in dentistry. She attended Fox Valley Technical College’s dental assisting program, and after finishing, started working as a dental assistant at TRI-County Community Dental. While working at TRI-County, Jacklynn found a love and passion for helping those who would not typically be able to find or afford regular dental care.

In 2016, Jacklynn and her husband, along with her three children, decided to move to the Madison area. She was adamant about continuing to work for a community dental clinic, and as luck would have it, MDI was hiring a new clinic coordinator. The rest is history! Jacklynn was the perfect fit and has been a great addition to the MDI family.
