Jessica is a case writer for the Center. In this role, Jessica supports the Center’s research, evaluation, and leadership development programs. In May 2014 Jessica graduated from Georgetown University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology of Global Health.
Early in her undergraduate career she realized that primary care is not only central to global health, but that it is also the foundation to health overall. In order to further pursue her passion for primary care, she established and led the Georgetown Chapter of Primary Care Progress, the organization’s first undergraduate chapter. In addition to her interest in global health and primary care, Jessica is an avid bioethics advocate. She developed the Georgetown Bioethics Society, designed and chaired a national undergraduate bioethics conference, and shaped the curriculum for the first edX Massive Online Open Course in bioethics (MOOC).
