Nick Jackal
Community Engagement Director

Nick joined Cambia Grove in July 2018 to amplify and grow the work throughout the health innovation community. His primary focus is elevating the programmatic messaging and ensuring that the needs of our community are firmly represented in the pursuit of a person centric, economic sustainable health care system.

Nick is drawn to this work for the vast potential impacts a transformed health care system could have for people from every socioeconomic background. In his previous roles, Nick served as a political campaign operative and consultant for eight years focused building community to take on tough challenges at many levels of elected office across the country. 

In 2015, he joined Food Lifeline’s development team eventually transitioning into a community programs role where he led a hunger and health intervention for food insecure type 2 diabetics. In this role, Nick had the privilege of working with representatives from a broad cross-section of the health care industry to develop and launch a robust pilot program with Sea Mar Community Health Centers. 

Outside of work, Nick and his wife, Molly, enjoy being parents to baby Eilis and 18-pound cat baby named C.C. Nick relishes any opportunity to sign up and not properly train for half and full marathons, gardening and exploring every corner of Washington state.
