Jessica has been working in healthcare for 20 years. During that time, Jessica has always had a passion for helping people. She began volunteering in the neighborhood Nursing Home when she was seven years old until she was hired in her first job as a recreation leader at 20 years old. As the Recreation Director, Jessica's favorite part of her job is seeing the residents' faces light up with joy and being excited and engaged in the programs provided at Cortlandt. Jessica likes to spend her free time with her family. She is also part of an organization called Brown Paper Bag, where vegan meals, toiletries, and clothing are delivered to the homeless in the streets of New York and provide them with haircuts.
