Raised in her hometown of Portland, Oregon by way of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Jessica graduated from the University of Oregon with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and minor in Business Administration. She first ventured into the working world of financial aid as a work-study student at UO where the seed was planted.
Before joining Lewis & Clark, Jessica worked as an administrator in both private and public sectors, most recently as a Business & Employment Specialist for the State of Oregon Employment Department. However, her deep commitment to students and desire to demystify the process led Jessica back to her financial aid roots. Her goal is to help LC students have a positive and enriching college experience.
Away from campus, Jessica enjoys working on puzzles, consuming online articles, listening to audiobooks, baking, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
