A former Division I student-athlete, Jackson brings experience as a player and coach from all levels of college soccer to Franklin. Her most recent stop in the college coaching ranks was at Johnson & Wales University in Colorado from 2013-17, where she helped build the women’s soccer program from scratch and turn the Wildcats into a conference tournament contender. During that time at JWU, she also served as the head strength and conditioning coach, an adjunct professor and the Senior Woman Administrator.
Before heading to Colorado, she broke into the coaching ranks at Shorter University, where she was the Hawks’ head coach and recruiting coordinator from 2008-13. She helped the Hawks make the transition from the NAIA to Division II and was a consistent post-season qualifier during her time on the Shorter sideline.
In addition to years of coaching at the club level, Jackson has been a women’s soccer recruiting coach at Next College Student Athlete (NCSA) since 2020, where she has built relationships with club coaches and athletes from around the country as part of the college recruiting process.
A 2005 graduate of Stetson University, Jackson was a four-year letter winner for the Hatters and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Rehabilitative Studies. In 2010, she earned her Master of Arts in Leadership from Shorter.
