Jessica leads marketing, communications and outreach for the UC Davis Library. She raises awareness about library services, resources and events among students, faculty, alumni, and other library patrons and supporters. She is building an integrated communications program for the library, and creates content across multiple platforms, from campus media to social media to web-based and print collateral. Prior to joining UC Davis, she led communications efforts on a wide range of social and environmental issues, from environmental conservation to higher education to LGBT equality, both in consulting roles and as a communications officer for the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. She loves to travel and has visited every continent except Antarctica (though having two kids under five is keeping her closer to home for now).
