Jessica has worked as a copywriter, editor, and translator, but she most enjoys community building with partners through education, nature, and the arts. Her volunteer work over the past several years helped her realize that connecting children (and adults) to nature is her passion. She is excited about working at a school that closely matches her own values. She sees a connection to local nature and place as one of the most important facets of childhood we can give to our children. Jessica greatly enjoys reading, walking in the local woods or prairies during every season, and playing board games with friends and family. Two of her favorite games are Dixit and Machi Koro—if you like games, check them out!
