Jackie Nairn was born in Blue Island, Illinois, and raised in northwest Indiana. She moved to Cottonwood four years ago and felt at home immediately upon arrival. Jackie currently works as a community manager in low-income housing; before that she was a social worker for over 20 years having spent the first three and half years in Cottonwood working to house individuals experiencing homelessness. She has a Bachelor in Social Work degree from Valparaiso University.
Jackie is dedicated to helping the community in any way she can. Jackie has been serving on the Library Advisory Board for the past two years and on the board for the Verde Valley Homeless Coalition for a little more than a year. She also volunteers with the Old Town Mission. Jackie enjoys music, reading, and nature.
She looks forward to this opportunity to serve the community and would like to hear from you regarding your thoughts on city issues and would like you to contact by phone, email, or letter at any time.
