Jessica joined the Junior League of Long Beach in January 2015 shortly after moving to Long Beach. She joined to meet new people in the area, get involved with the community, and be part of a group that was making a difference.
Outside of the League, Jessica is the Director of Research and Evaluation at The Mark in Orange County. She currently oversees their STEM education program evaluation and also works with nonprofit organizations in the community to conduct program evaluation as well as help them build their capacity to conduct their own evaluation. Jessica does workshops in the community focused on all aspects of evaluation as a way to bring nonprofits together to discuss evaluation and ways to improve data collection and reporting.
In her free time she loves to try out new restaurants, go running and salsa dancing, and spend time with family and friends.
