She received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English with a focus in Multicultural American Literature from UGA in 2012. Jessica previously held the position of Senior Event Coordinator within the office of Campus Reservations, Events and Technical Services within Student Affairs. In this role she managed over seven event spaces on campus, the largest being the Tate Student Center Grand Hall. Most recently, Jessica worked in the office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost as an administrative specialist for special projects and assistant to the Vice Provost. This position allowed Jessica to work on several university initiatives and plan special events for the Provost's Office.
