Jackie Pillo, News Reporter


Hi everyone, my name is Jackie Pillo. I have lived in Woodstock pretty much my entire life. I am new to the WINY team and I absolutely love working as a news reporter. I graduated from Woodstock Academy in 2015 and since then I have been attending Quinebaug Valley Community College. Currently I am finishing up an associates degree in liberal arts & sciences before transferring out to a university. I plan to major in political science with a focus in international relations. I am very passionate when it comes to understanding what is happening in our world today so I aspire to work with foreign affairs one day. 

I am co-president of the Current Events Club at QVCC where I also am involved at Student Government meetings. In my free time I am teaching myself German (next will be French). I enjoy traveling as much as I can. I underwent surgery on my hip in January but I look forward to finally returning to activities such as hiking and yoga!
