Dr. Jacqueline Kulaga

Jacqueline Kulaga holds a PhD in Conflict Analysis and Resolution (2021) and Masters of Science in National Securities and International relations (2014) from Nova Southeastern University. Her Dissertation, Eliminating Silos: Systems Design for Information Sharing in Violence Prevention, developed a methodology and structure for addressing organizational conflict and internal challenges to meeting and attaining strategic goals.

Dr. Kulaga currently works in Training and Education for the Department of Defense. Prior to this role, Dr. Kulaga acted as Program Manager for Mega Victim Case Assistance Program (MCAP) at the Executive Offices for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) at the Department of Justice. In this role, she assisted the 94 districts with case management and the victim notification process. She worked with Victim Witness Staff and US Attorneys to ensure case process compliance with regulations and policies, and streamlined case management by MCAP. Within her five year tenure, she has assisted in over 600 cases and managed a team to provide services for over one million victims.

Dr. Kulaga also worked as a victim advocate and prevention educator for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, focusing on human trafficking and high-lethality domestic violence cases. In the span of the last decade, she served as a liaison and project coordinator between the criminal and civil justice systems and the human service providers, while facilitating the creation of proactive solutions to systemic barriers. She coordinated a pilot project called the Risk Reduction Response Program (RRRP), a collaborative project involving multiple local government agencies and nonprofits for Orange County, NY. Responsibilities included training, reporting, facilitating team case-conferencing meetings, and monitoring the project's effectiveness. She also played an intricate role in expanding the program for new and emerging stakeholders.

In the past, she has volunteered her time with the international organization, Somaly Mam Foundation. While a majority of the time was assisting with events, Dr Kulaga provided human trafficking awareness speaking engagements throughout New York City on behalf of the organization. During that time, she also assisted the NYU/ Bellevue Victims of Torture Program in structuring and executing their evening English as a Second Language (ESL) program. During her 6 year residence in Florida, Dr. Kulaga served as the Volunteer Coordinator with the Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking (FCAHT). With FCAHT, she provided training across the state, and provided outreach during the Super Bowl in New Orleans. Dr. Kulaga has also dedicated her time to training in mediation and facilitation, as well as managing the International Ethno-Religious Mediation Conference held at Queens College (2018). Now living in the DC area, she volunteers her time with Becky's Fund, a nonprofit organization working to end domestic violence through education, advocacy and service.
