Jessica’s passion is education and advocating for educational institutions; she has over 14 years of experience in marketing, communications, and development supporting universities and nonprofit organizations focused on education across the country. Her broad experience, desire to always learn more, and easy-going nature make her an asset to Hands Across the Sea. Jessica received a BS from Clemson University in Marketing and a Masters from Georgetown University in Corporate Communications.
She enjoys running, reading, cooking, and traveling (with over twenty-five countries visited), but loves being home watching Clemson sports with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs most of all. Jessica’s favorite children’s book is “Gaston” by Kelly DiPucchio because it encourages everyone to be authentic (and because it is about dogs).
