Jessica is University Innovation Fellow and graduate from Menlo College. She graduated in May 2019 with a Bachelors degree in Marketing. She currently works in Product Marketing in the tech industry. She now brings her experiences from UIF & design thinking methodologies to her day-to-day work!

During her undergrad, Jessica was a part of the very first cohort to be named as University Innovation Fellows at Menlo College and one of the first groups to represent a business school within the program. She was heavily involved as a change maker on her campus - from creating Menlo's first makerspace known as The Innovation Center to leading the Oaks Innovation Club, a student-led entrepreneurship club, to organizing community events on campus such as Startup Weekend Silicon Valley and TedX. She is passionate about empowering others and enjoys mentoring new fellows.

In her free time, you can find her on the California coast enjoying a day at the beach with her dog, traveling to new places, playing pickleball, or spending time with family & friends.
