Prior to joining the YMOW team, Jessica was a volunteer herself throughout high school and college. She most recently served as assistant volunteer and outreach coordinator for Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation’s GIVE365 program.
Jessica said she looks forward to tapping into the community’s generous, caring citizens to create an even stronger program at Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels.
“I wanted to shift my focus to my community in Ypsilanti,” Jessica said of her move to YMOW, where she hopes to bring creative ideas, a “can do” attitude, and growth to the organization through the work of volunteers from the community.
A 2014 graduate of Eastern Michigan University, Jessica is pursuing a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from her alma mater.
“Volunteers play an important role in the support of the YMOW mission. As a YMOW volunteer, they get to experience first-hand the impact that can come from a seemingly simple interaction each day,” Jessica said.
Jessica lives in Ypsilanti Township with her partner, Travis, and their two cats, Finn and Marble. She loves being outdoors, preparing food from local farms and doing what she can to protect the planet.
