Welcome Jacqueline Klene!
When someone new starts at Acumen we ask a handful of questions to start to get to know them better and share that with you because we’re excited to have Awesome people join the team!
Where are you from?
I grew up in Belleville, IL.
What are some things you enjoy doing (besides working)?
I love going to the Fox and the Muny. Musical theater is my jam. I also studied art in college so I love to draw and illustrate. I’ve written and/or illustrated a couple children’s books and have been working on greeting cards lately.
Favorite Movie Genre or Fave Movie?
It’s not a real movie genre but it would have to be “fake science.” Regular sci-fi movies are great (Back to the Future and the like), but fake science is another genre that my best friend and I invented to cover the romantic movies that feature some insane scientific anomaly that drives the plot. “Age of Adaline” and “The Space Between Us” are perfect examples of the excellent genre of fake science.
Favorite Type of Music and/or Band You’re Feeling Right Now?
Again, I’m a musical theater nerd so any showtune is fair game for me. “Come From Away” and “Be More Chill” are currently my favorites.
Place you’d like to visit but haven’t yet?
Almost too many to name, but I’d love to go to Greece, Australia, and Spain. Oh and the Harry Potter Studios Tour in London.
Drink of Choice?
Frozen strawberry margarita (mango is also acceptable) with salt, a lime, and an umbrella because I’m classy
