Jacki Skole is an award-winning journalist and adjunct professor of communication. She launched her journalism career at CNN, first as a news writer, then as a producer in the network’s documentary unit; she’s also produced programs for Animal Planet and HGTV. Jacki has taught at La Salle University, Rider University, and Raritan Valley
Community College. She is a book reviewer for EcoLit Books and a reader for Creative Nonfiction.

Jacki lives in New Jersey with her husband and three daughters—two human, one canine. It is Galen, Jacki’s canine daughter, who inspired the journey that resulted in Dogland.

When Jacki is not teaching or chauffeuring her daughters to dance class, she sneaks in a little yoga and blogs about the human-canine relationship. You can read her newest posts here and her early writing at shesadork.com. (That  “she”  refers to Galen, not Jacki!)
