Jacqueline got involved in Millennial Politics after the devastating election results in 2016. A firm believer in equality and women’s rights, she feels strongly that her generation has the responsibility to follow Secretary Clinton’s core values by doing “all the good you can.”
She is the Director of Corporate Research and Community Outreach at her family’s company, Paolino Properties. In this capacity, she engages with community and business leaders on development projects that promote public good. Notably, this includes a large scale project to provide long-term affordable housing and services to low income residents in Rhode Island. Previously, she was an Account Executive at Havas PR where she led efforts to promote tourism in Rhode Island alongside the Commerce Corporation.
She was first exposed to politics in 2002 at the age of 10, when her father ran for Mayor of Providence. She caught the bug, and over the course of her career she continued to volunteer her time for several local, state, and national campaigns all over the country (including both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential bids). She was an intern for Senator Sheldon Whitehouse in his state office and served as a Fellow for Mayor Angel Taveras in Providence. She also worked as a Finance Fellow on Terry McAuliffe’s gubernatorial campaign in Virginia.
Jacqueline graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in 2014 with a BA in Political Science and a minor in media and society. She enjoys travel, music, and poetry. Most importantly, she never stops networking.
