Hey Neighbor: Meet Jackie Mena

The Seattle Department of Neighborhoods’ Hey Neighbor! series introduces you to the people behind the scenes working to build, strengthen, and engage the communities of Seattle.

Meet Jackie Mena

Jackie is part of our Strategic Initiatives Team where she works to center the voices and ideas of community members in major City initiatives. She joined the City after working in the field of political advocacy and organizing, and through her role strives to increase equitable access to the City and its resources. She loves Seattle summers, taco trucks and urban hikes. When she’s not at City Hall, you can find her enjoying the vibrant businesses and community spaces White Center has to offer.
