Currently based in New York City, Jessica fell in love with feminism as a little girl and has been stomping her feet for women’s equality ever since. With a B.A. in Women & Gender Studies (Bates College) and an M.Sc. in Fundraising & Grantmaking (New York University), Jessica loves living and working at the intersection of women and philanthropy – and is inspired by the power it has to transform the world. Prior to her work with Women Moving Millions, Jessica worked with Inspired Philanthropy Group – a boutique consulting firm supporting individuals and corporations to help create authentic, effective impact. In another life, she served as Associate Features Editor at Harper’s Bazaar magazine, where she learned to write, edit, and treat deadlines with respect. Jessica currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Women’s Foundation and as Board Chair for RefugePoint, a U.S. and Kenyan-based NGO that provides lasting solutions for the world’s most vulnerable refugees. She is a trustee of the Houssian Foundation and is a member of Resource Generation and Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP).
