Jaclyn has worked for UUCM since 2005 and has a BA in English Literature from Saint Peter’s College.
Before working at the U, Jaclyn was a product developer for a toy company. Over the years, Jaclyn’s position has evolved from Secretary, which consisted of answering phones and putting together the order of service and newsletter, to the Office and Communications Manager, which consists of these duties along with maintaining the website, our social media pages, and keeping the congregation informed on a daily basis. She is proud to be a longtime employee of the U and has worked with over two dozen ministers and staff members combined throughout the years.
Born and raised in New Jersey, she lives in Bloomfield with her husband, Anthony, and their children, Anthony and Amelia. Jaclyn loves being in the kitchen, cooking and baking (especially her signature crumb cake). She especially enjoys feeding others; it’s how this Italian girl shows love.
Jaclyn is an avid reader of fiction and thrillers (find her on Goodreads.) She also loves movies (along with quoting her favorites, such as Jaws and Goodfellas), 80’s/New Wave music, organizing, traveling, gardening and “The Golden Girls.”
