Growing up in a small town, Jessica ventured off into the world to begin her undergrad education at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA. Two years later, she found herself at a turning point in life, taking her across the pond to Yorkshire, England. There, she completed her undergrad education at Leeds Beckett University, graduating with a B.A. (Hons) Marketing and Advertising Management degree.
In 2018, Jessica moved back to her hometown of Culpeper, VA, where she still calls home. After work ventures that took her through EdTech, Private Education, and the Gift & Home industries, Jessica is excited to join the non-profit space. With an endless love for animals and how passionate she is for the environment, Oceana was the perfect place to call home.
On weekends, Jessica spends her free time with her German Shepherd, exploring the great outdoors, pushing her limits in a Spartan race, or at her favourite watering hole with her friends.
