Jessica joined our team at New Earth in May of 2013 when we launched our Explore Job Development Program. She graduated Manga Cum Laude with a B.A. in Film and Electronic studies from California State University of Long Beach. Jessica grew up surrounded by the arts and has a deep passion for their importance to humanity and society. She has volunteered in the arts with youth in the past, and believes that it is imperative that the youth of today have a voice in which to be able to tell their stories. When Jessica is not at work she is an avid reader and writer, working on screenplays and poetry. She is thrilled to be able to bring her passion for art and integrate it into her place of work.
