Jess has a BA in Political Studies from the University of Guelph and a teaching certification from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY. Teaching ESL and Middle School internationally allowed Jess to travel extensively worldwide and experience many different cultures.
Jess works with newcomer families to get their kids in school and help connect them with opportunities to become more engaged in the greater Peterborough community, whether through sports, the arts or education. This role has introduced her to many fascinating people from all over the world who have chosen to make Peterborough their home. This makes each day at NCC interesting and new for her.
Jess loves music, the Warsaw Caves, going to concerts, kayaking and spending time with her family.
