Jessica is an attorney and executive director at Northwest Advocacy Foundation. A Chicago transplant, she moved to Seattle prior to starting law school at Seattle University School of Law.
While in law school, Jessica worked at Anderson, York & Stratton, as a Legal Assistant and then Rule 9 Licensed Legal Intern. In her three years at AY&S, she gained invaluable mentorship, training, and experience. The folks she assisted and the work she did there are what inspired her to start Northwest Advocacy Foundation.
In addition to running Northwest Advocacy Foundation, Jessica is completing a Fellowship at Eastside Legal Assistance Program, where she assists domestic violence survivors with protection orders and family law matters.
In her free time, Jessica enjoys hiking, reading, and playing with her adorable cat, Cyrille.
