Through out her 15+ years experience as a designer/strategist, Jacalin has assisted start-ups, enterprises, media and digital product agencies to turn their biggest, wildest ideas into long-term viable products. She worked with companies from New York, Vancouver, Tokyo, Singapore and back home in Australia.

In 2020, Jacalin will continue to expand her passion of mentoring young professionals to tap into their full potential in this field.
