Jacqueline Frischknecht, PhD
Jacqueline Frischknecht, PhD, mother of three, earned a BA in education from the University of Colorado, and an MA in library science and a PhD in communication from the University of Denver. Beginning her career as a first-grade teacher, she ultimately became a professor of speech communication at University College in Denver and served as dean of academic affairs.
