Her father, a career Army Colonel who subsequently worked with a consulting firm working directly with the State Department ensuring we had appropriate technology and security for our Embassies, instilled in Jackie a love for our country. Personally, I have witnessed Jackie’s patriotic core values on display in her daily life in our community. I am delighted that Jackie Wieland has agreed to join the Board of Trustees of IWP.”
