Music is Jaclyn Bradley Palmer’s first language. Originally from Lorain, Ohio, music has been Jaclyn’s vehicle to meeting amazing people and experiencing the world. It is the vessel that placed her at Indiana University where she received a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance and Los Angeles where she composed songs for TV and film. After years of classical studies, performances across the United States, and many recordings, Jaclyn was compelled to help others through the music that had so richly graced her own life. With this in mind, Jaclyn began a post baccalaureate music therapy degree at Cleveland State University. From the moment she began her studies, she knew that music therapy was an amazing opportunity to integrate her talents with her desire to serve others.
After her internship at Case Medical Center under the direction of Deforia Lane, Ph.D., Jaclyn was hired as the music therapist at The Connor Integrative Medical Network where she serves inpatients at University Hospital’s Ahuja Medical Center in Beachwood, Ohio. She is also conducting a 200 person/2year study through the Seidman Cancer Center on the effect perioperative music therapy has on women undergoing surgical breast biopsy.
In addition, Jaclyn is enrolled at Colorado State University where she is obtaining a master’s degree focused on Neurologic Music Therapy.
If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph: THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD WAS MUSIC.Kurt Vonnegut
