Jacinta realised as a teenager that she had a natural talent for organisation and thrived off bringing an event concept to life and seeing people’s enjoyment from it.
She mastered her craft by completing a Diploma in Events Management and secured a role at Chamber of Commerce and Industry of WA. This sparked her desire to build on her knowledge, so she completed a Bachelor of Commerce in Marketing and Public Relations at Curtin University.
During this time, she was given the opportunity to live in New York whilst completing online Marketing units. Since returning to Perth in 2012, she has worked as the Marketing Coordinator for YMCA WA Recreation Department and as an Events Officer at Curtin University St Georges Terrace. Most recently she has worked as a Corporate Events Coordinator for Edith Cowan University.
Jacinta enjoys bringing people together to share their experiences and knowledge. She is an avid volunteer and enjoys donating her time and skills to local community projects and events. Jacinta joined the YAAB as an Events Coordinator to assist in organising events to bring the young alumni community together.
