While obtaining her sustainability-focused Master’s Degree, Jackie worked
for The University of Florida in combination with the Hinkley Center for
Solid and Hazardous Waste. For these organizations, Jackie developed a
contractor’s guide for managing and diverting jobsite waste. To finalize
her Master’s Degree, Jackie’s thesis analyzed current and estimated

diverting the gypsum board waste generated; therefore limiting the costs and
hazards associated with disposal and improving the nearby community.
