Jackie Ostrowicki


With nearly 15 years of communication experience—including university teaching, a senior leadership position at a large, publicly-traded company, a stint at several Nebraska ad agencies, and her current role in higher education administration—Jackie merges big-picture thinking with a knack for storytelling. 

Jackie’s skill as a professional storyteller has been informed by her personal journey—where she learned to take an active role in shaping her life story with the events life handed her as material…especially the ones that were difficult and dark. All personal stories contain both light and shadows; she explores how we can find the inherent beauty in the interplay of these elements—and how shadows play a role in making our personal narratives rich and meaningful.
