Jess is the Operations Coordinator at Friends of the Earth where she oversees all office management requirements for both the Washington, DC and Berkeley, CA offices — including vendor relations, operations onboarding and project coordination.
Prior to joining Friends of the Earth, Jess worked in project management and operations in the private sector. Her background allowed her to implement solutions to increase workflow efficiencies and operational systems.
Originally from the Hudson Valley in New York, Jess graduated from SUNY New Paltz with a B.A. in Public Relations and a minor in Environmental Studies. She has lived in Washington D.C. since 2015 and still loves exploring the city. When not at work, you can find Jess volunteering with local animal rescues, riding her bike and generally obsessing over the love of her life — her rescue dog, Sassafras.
