Jacky Speck is a lifelong Philadelphian with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Temple University, and a Master of Science degree in the same field from Drexel University. She has worked as an engineer in several different industries including National Defense, Robotics, and Informatics.
In addition to her technological pursuits, Jacky is passionate about strength training and physical fitness. She has trained and competed as a Powerlifter for two years, winning first place in the Women's 132 lb. Weight Class at two Philadelphia-area United Powerlifting Association meets, and is now switching gears to learn Olympic Weightlifting.
Fitness goes hand-in-hand with food, another of Jacky's favorite things. She loves experimenting in the kitchen to discover new healthy meals, as well as delicious but decidedly unhealthy comfort food (everything in moderation!)
