INDIANA — Indiana Treasurer of State Kelly Mitchell has hired the first employee of the new Indiana Education Scholarship Account Program (INESA). Jaclyn Guglielmo, a certified behavior analyst and educator, will serve as Executive Director of the program.
Guglielmo will manage INESA as it prepares to launch in fall 2022 and will be primarily responsible for the program’s implementation, day-to-day operations, strategic vision, and building the team.

“My team and I could not be more impressed with Jaclyn’s dynamism, policy knowledge, and commitment to education,” said Treasurer Mitchell. “Her unique background, coupled with an instinctive knowledge of government processes, makes her an excellent choice to lead our new program. I look forward to introducing her to stakeholders around the state and am excited to work with her as we build INESA in a responsible, effective manner.”
Guglielmo holds a Bachelor of Science in Public Policy and Law from Trinity College and a Master of Science in Teaching from Fordham University. She lives in Fortville with her family.
