A Little About Myself...

Jacque Schrag

I’m Jacque (pronounced Jackie) Schrag. Originally from Indiana, I currently live and work in Washington, D.C. I work with an incredibly talented group of people at the Dracopoulos iDeas Lab at the Center for Strategic and International Studies to create websites, apps, and data visualizations.

I currently focus on front-end development, but have experience doing back-end application work as well. My languages of choice are JavaScript and PHP, but I’ve also dabbled with Ruby and Python.

When I’m not working, I enjoy playing boardgames with my fiancé Jared, putting my education to use in trivia competitions, slowly putting together puzzles, writing, and participating in DC coding community events.

In May 2016, I received my M.A. in International Peace and Conflict Resolution from American University’s School of International Service. My studies focused primarily on human rights and democracy issues, with a regional interest in the Middle East and North Africa. I’m interested in exploring the intersection between peace-building, advocacy, and technology. I received my B.A. in History from Ball State University in 2013.
