Jackie Burrell is a writer covering parenting of young adults. She was an education and parenting reporter, and now serves as the food & wine editor at the Bay Area News Group's chain of daily newspapers in the San Francisco Bay Area, including the Mercury News, Times and Tribune.
For the last decade, Jackie Burrell's articles about children, families, college and parenting have appeared regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area News Group's daily newspapers and in papers across the Media News chain. These days, she edits the food & wine section for that newspaper group. But journalistic background aside, Burrell got her parenting expertise the old-fashioned way: as a mother of four.
Jackie graduated from UC Berkeley.
