who we are

Jackie Hughes

General Manager

Hello, my name is Jackie Hughes and I am the General Manager at University Pines. I have two kids, my oldest is a boy named Luke who is six and a three year old girl named Maria. I have been at University Pines for six years and have been with the company 11 years this year. I love to travel, read and water the grass. I have a Bachelors degree in Music Performance, a Masters in Music Education and I am currently starting my seventh semester at the University of North Texas to obtain a doctorate in Higher Education. The best thing about working at University Pines is getting to work with college students. It is a wonderful feeling when you see their growth from freshman year to the day they graduate. It is hard to see them go but you realize that they were never meant to stay, it is a journey.
