Jessica creates and executes plans to raise awareness about RESCHOOL and its initiatives, manages projects and operations. She believes that that the traditional education system and the people serving within it are overtaxed, and that by recognizing all the places in which kids learn and access support, we can better serve learners and providers across education ecosystems.
Prior to joining the Donnell-Kay Foundation and RESCHOOL, Jessica worked at the Colorado Department of Education in multiple roles. She was a grant manager for federally and state-funded dollars supporting adult education programs, worked with innovation and charter schools, and worked in the Commissioner's Office and the High School Equivalency Testing Office. Prior to CDE, Jessica worked with a non-profit providing high school equivalency testing and skills coaching, primarily to youth and adults who were incarcerated.
Jessica graduated from Colorado State University.
