A two-time Collegiate All American athlete, Jessica earned her B.A. and California Teaching Credential from Point Loma Nazarene University while competing in Cross Country and Track & Field. With a Master’s in Education-Equity & Social Justice from San Francisco State University, Jessica brings diverse experience and an extensive background in both the non-profit and private sectors.
A California native, Jessica joined POTENTE after four years in Sydney, Australia, where she worked at a top university, added to her international experience, and tried in vain to pick up an Aussie accent. Having visited 55 countries (and counting), her desire to increase her cultural awareness and broaden her worldview means her next trip abroad is always on the horizon. When she’s not working (or traveling), Jessica can be found enjoying outdoor adventures with her favorite people in the world: her husband and their two young children.
