Jackie Seely - Program Director

As the Program Director I have ten years experience with clients in and around the County of Newell. I am the person who manages the daily operations of the Council but most importantly, the person who works directly with adult learners and volunteers.

Helping adults achieve their next goal in life, and seeing them succeed, drives me to continue to improve the program for all learners to enjoy.
