Jessica joined GRI in the fall of 2016 by working with Global Goods and Coffee. She has a passion for helping those overseas which started when she learned about the genocides in Rwanda and Cambodia. She then attended her first peaceful activist rally.

Jessica went on to graduate Doane University with a Bachelor's of Arts in Philosophy and a minor in Religious Studies.  She enjoys knowing that her work is making an impact around the world even if it is in just a small way. 

Jessica lives in Denver with her husband and daughter.
