Her goal is to assist them, and in doing so, to keep Saskatchewan roads and highways safe. Jackie also conducts one-on-one counselling in order to work through her clients’ underlying issues.

Jackie has memorable moments each day at work – after group work ends, clients complete evaluations. When she reads those and sees her clients’ comments on how she has changed their lives for the better, she recognizes the true value of her work.
