Jackie Collette is the coordinator for the Office of Pre-Health Programs supporting the Director, Pre-Health Advisors and students at all stages of the preparation for careers in health professions.
Since 2009 Jackie has served as the initial contact for current students and alums supporting students who intend to apply to all health professions careers from before their arrival on campus, to alums that have graduated. She provides an overview of the office, schedules 30 minute meetings with one of the pre-health advisors, and coordinates many on campus events from exploring careers workshops, application workshops, and hosting representatives from health professions graduate schools. Jackie is dedicated to working closely with applicants, staff, and faculty to ensure that all application requirements are met by providing guidance and support for on-line applications, navigating the Interfolio letter credential service which students create to collect confidential letters of recommendation, and committee letters.
Prior to joining Mount Holyoke, Jackie was a marketing manager with PricewaterhouseCoopers, responsible for publications, keynote speakers, roundtable panelists for conferences, and firm-wide communications. She has held positions as a publishing manager with a communications consulting firm and as a publishing/editorial office manager for the Harvard Business School’s magazine the Harvard Business Review.
She enjoys all that the academic environment at Mount Holyoke College has to offer, as well as outdoor adventures in all seasons. When she’s not busy working Jackie can be found walking the campus, touring the greenhouse or Art Museum, or visiting the horses at the equestrian center.
