Professional Profile

My name is Jacqueline F. Casey, but I usually go by my nickname Jacq. 
I am a proud fifth-generation Nevadan and US Air Force veteran.  I have earned a Master of Arts in Anthropology and I am currently working towards a Master of Business Administration.  My hobbies include blogging and writing, various forms of gaming, and general fitness. (More here in my very first blog post!)

My core values are honesty and vulnerability, and professional and personal relationships. 
These values translate into actionable behaviors: be brave and put people first.  Putting effort into building relationships leads to happiness and achievement.  By engaging in service to others, paying attention to colleague morale and well-being, and applying transformational leadership principles, leaders can shape the mission dedication needed for the organization to be successful.  Hence, my professional drive is to improve the product or service by improving teamwork with skill sets and increased morale, and mentoring leadership in the individual.

As an Active Duty Military Member
My time in the military gave me experience in middle and project management and trained me for commanding and leadership.  My positions instilled in me a solid work ethic, high-quality assurance standards, and attention-to-detail.  I was able to develop the ability to perform well in high-stress situations with fast-paced deadlines, to sharpen my risk management capabilities, and gain a refined comprehension of policy and direction.

As a Social Scientist
My time as an anthropologist honed my ability to collaborate well with diverse peoples from diverse cultures, an understanding in social and behavioral patterns in and between individuals, and high ethical and humane practices.  I learned how to execute objective research well, gained a solid comprehension of statistics, anti-plagiarism, and proper citation skills, and how to publish written works.
