This is Jackie Mantey. Say hi next time you see her out (secret password to receive a high five: spelunking; earn a secret handshake if you work it into a sentence). Jackie has worked as a reporter at Alive since October 2010. She mostly writes feature stories about style and art in Columbus. Beer assignments are always fun, too.
