About Jessica

I have experience tutoring and teaching both children and adults. Currently, I tutor elementary students in all subjects including math, reading, and social studies at Gary Comer Youth Center. From 2011-2012, I also taught environmental and recycling education at five Chicago Public Schools in the neighborhood of Uptown. In addition to that, I volunteer with the Chicago Conservation Corps and organized speakers for a middle school Science, Technology, Math, and Engineering Parents Night and an elementary Green Week event. Currently with Chicago Conservation Corps, I am educating Chicago residents in the neighborhood of Uptown about food waste prevention and weatherization as part of a food waste research project that will be distributing 70 food waste disposals to see how much food waste can be reduced from disposals. From 2010-2012, I facilitated a smoking cessation class to over 100 adult residents at a homeless shelter called A Safe Haven.

My education includes a B.A. from University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2009. My majors were History with concertrations in U.S. History and Early Modern World History (1500-1900 world history) and Geography with a concentration in People and Environment Interactions (environmental studies). I am a paralegal in the army reserves and have attended many army schools and training including Paralegal Specialist School, Primary Leadership Development Course, and Advanced Leaders Course. I have also attended a nonprofit management training course through Public Allies Chicago.
