As a Community Relations & Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica establishes and maintains relationships with community partners such as local businesses, government agencies, schools and other non-profits. Jessica enjoys planing and promoting fun events, activities and educational programs, as well as supervising volunteers.
Since joining EmPoWER Somerset, Jessica has created some outstanding programs that help to meet the needs of our local community. For example, she established the “Tote Bag,” which is a summer program that provides non-perishable food items to children and their families that receive free and/or reduced breakfast/lunch during the school year. She also developed “Young Athlete” in partnership with the Special Olympics, which is a recreational/sports program for kids with special needs.
A mother of two, Jessica is very involved with her children’s extracurricular activities. A Girl Scout leader for the past seven years, she guided her troop to earn their Bronze Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve.
