Jackie Jarrard-Turner is Fusion Academy’s resident therapist. She holds a B.A. in Comparative Literature and an M.A. in Psychology, both from Chapman University. She is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
Jackie has worked for Riverside Unified School District, in community clinics and in private practice, seeing a range of clients from age 5 to 85 (yes, really!). She enjoys working with adolescents because they are intellectually curious and usually have a good sense of humor.
In her free time, Jackie likes to read, cook and bake. She makes a lot of delicious cookies, cakes and pies, which she enjoys sharing with her husband and two daughters. Her cats, Victor Vito and Oliver, do not get any desserts, but enjoy scrounging for dropped morsels of her spaghetti puttanesca.
