Library Management & Leadership | MBA Student | Anthropologist | Blogger | Gamer | Runner


My name is Jacqueline F. Casey; however, 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 (MA) in Anthropology and I am currently working towards a Masters of Business Administration (MBA). My hobbies include various forms of gaming and general fitness. (More here in my very first blog post!)

My core values are honesty and vulnerability (be brave!), and professional and personal relationships (people first!). I strongly believe the relationships you build foster your happiness and success. Service to others using transformational leadership principles and attention to colleague morale and well-being will shape the mission dedication needed for the organization to be successful. Therefore, my professional drive is to improve the product or service by refining teamwork (e.g. skills and morale) and fostering leadership in the individual.

As a… Active Duty Military Member
My time in the military gave me experience in middle management and trained me for commanding and leadership. My appointments instilled in me a solid work ethic, high-quality assurance standards, and attention-to-detail. I was able to cultivate 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 directions.

As a… Social Scientist
My time as an anthropologist has gifted me the ability to work well with diverse peoples from different cultures, an understanding in social and behavioral patterns in and between individuals, high ethical and humane practices, how to execute objective research well, a solid comprehension of statistics, anti-plagiarism and proper citation skills, and how to publish written works.
