JacQuaye joined KZCF just last month and serves as the Executive Assistant to the President/CEO. She provides executive support to the President/CEO, provides governance assistance to our Board and serves as a liaison to our senior leadership.
Before KZCF, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve had?
I worked as an intern at MTV in New York City when I was a junior in college. I got to meet over two dozen celebrities, from Nick Cannon, to Jay Z and Raven-Symone to Chris Brown and Rihanna when they were teens just trying to break into the music industry. I also got to fill in as an extra on TV shows, music videos and commercials. #FunTimes
What did you always want to be growing up?
I was sickly growing up so I spent tons of years in and out of the doctor’s office/hospital. As a result, I wanted to become a pediatrician (then I went to college for pre-med, was bored out of my mind with all the math and science classes, so I quickly changed my major).
What is your hidden talent?
I used to be a dancer and competed in national competitions while in college. I even joined a semi-pro dance team. I was already a working professional and a mom at this point, btw (sssh… don’t tell anyone).
