Jess (she/they) lives in New Hampshire with her husband, their pair of Bernese Mountain dogs, and two cats. Her academic journey began at Asnuntuck Community College (ACC). She began her studies with a love of grammar and literature, setting her sights on becoming a copy editor. However, after taking several psychology classes with Dr. Jean Egan, she decided to also pursue psychology, and her search for universities that would allow her to transfer as double-major began.
Jess transferred to the University of Denver (DU) after obtaining her Associate's of General Studies from ACC. She proudly holds a Bachelor's in Psychology and English (Creative Writing concentration) and is seeking a master's in library science.
She is a a first-generation college graduate and getting to that place was no small step. Jess implores that people coming from low socio-economic areas need more support. Jess believes in the power of knowledge, information, and community. She seeks to use her platform to elevate marginalised voices that are routinely spoken on behalf of or entirely over.
