Jess came to JDCF in August of 2018 to facilitate opportunities for people to grow an appreciation for their natural resources and the mission of JDCF. Prior to JDCF, she managed a team on a large CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm in Minnesota, a career endeavor which was piqued by her experiences as an environmental educator.
