Favorite CCC Mission: Becoming a community partner. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and Jaycie’s favorite thing about Critical Care Comics is being able to be part of that village. Whether we’re there to help families of kids who are sick, families who are struggling financially, or the families who just want their kids to meet their favorite superheroes, one of the best things about Critical Care Comics is being part of the village for so many kids.
About Jaycie: Jaycie grew up in Las Vegas, bouncing around all parts of the city and never staying in one place for very long. While she always focused on school, she grew up always like the awkward nerd trying to find her place to fit in. As she got older, she saw a passion in education and using education to help kids better their lives. Jaycie dedicated herself to this passion receiving her B.S. in Secondary Education from UNLV and is currently completing her M.A. with a focus on European History.
After graduating college, Jaycie began working as a teacher and became friends with Michael, who talked frequently about Critical Care Comics. At the same time, Jaycie also found another passion for nerdy culture and wanting to help people however she can. Michael asked her to join Critical Care Comics, and once Jaycie accepted, she fell in love with the mission and work helping the community ever since. As Supergirl, Jaycie strives to put a smile on kids faces however she can!
