• Background Information

  • 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 that she also wanted to 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 is a a first-generation college graduate, and getting to that place was no small step. Her journey has a very "no shoes, in the snow, uphill, both ways" ring to it- and while she recognizes it can be an amusing statement or show resilience anecdotally, she implores that people coming from low socio-economic areas need more support.

    Jess seeks to use her platform to elevate marginalized voices experiences with an intersectional lens. She proudly holds a dual-degree in Psychology and English (Creative Writing concentration), as well as having many credit hours in master's-level Forensic Psychology courses from the Graduate School of Professional Psychology (GSPP, DU; currently on an official medical leave).
