She went to Matagalpa as a member of the Cornell Leadership Program to learn more about the coffee industry, but her go-to coffee shop is still Lakota (closely followed by the Grind).

Jaclynn considers herself to be obnoxiously competitive at board games and card games, so think twice before challenging her to a game of Uno or Sorry.
