Xenia Jackson

Bilingual Financial Counselor

My name is Xenia Jackson and I am a Bilingual Financial Counselor for the Racine Financial Empowerment Center. Being born and raised in this community, the City of Racine is home. I am extremely passionate about giving back to my community and empowering people like myself, who come from households with little financial guidance, to achieve their goals. A sense of duty and commitment to my family and my community is what drives me as an individual. I hold an Associates Degree of Applied Science in Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement. I am a proud girl mom of two amazing athletes! On my days off, I like to spend time with my husband and our children exploring the city or making custom apparel. I am ecstatic to be a part of this invaluable program to bring financial counseling and coaching to the residents of our beautiful city by the lake!
