Experience

Jacqueline Sertell joined the NeuroRhythm team in January 2020. During her education at Georgia College & State University, she has worked with a wide variety of populations ranging in age from 4-72 in settings including preschools, veterans homes, dementia care, and community music therapy. 

Interests

Jacqueline’s primary instrument is percussion. She was trained in Western Classical Music and has learned to utilize guitar, piano, and voice in addition to percussion in music therapy sessions during her undergraduate training. She is highly interested in Neurologic Music Therapy and Neuro-Cognitive psychology, and enjoys learning more about the subjects to use in music therapy settings. 

Why I Want to Become a Music Therapist

Jacqueline has always had music in her life, starting with ballet lessons at a young age and joining band in school. As an avid learner, science has also always been a passion of Jacqueline’s. When she learned about music therapy while in high school, she knew the career would be the perfect blend of music and science she was looking for. This led her to Georgia College & State University where she was immediately immersed in the possibilities a career in music therapy brings. Jacqueline loves using music to empower others, and loves having the ability to pursue so many pathways in music therapy.

Education

Jacqueline completed her course work for her bachelor's degree in music therapy at Georgia College & State University in December 2019, and is currently completing her six month internship at NeuroRhythm Music Therapy Services. She looks forward to receiving her national certification as a Music Therapist Board Certified (MT-BC) from the Certification Board for Music Therapists (CBMT) and completing the Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) training from the Academy of Neurologic Music Therapy. Due to her deep interest in NMT and neurocognitive psychology, she is planning to apply for her graduate studies in the field of music and neuropsychology.
