Jessica joins us with international experience in community organizing, operations and social entrepreneurship. In 2007, she was awarded a Fulbright grant, with which she taught hundreds of high-school students and fundraised internationally to establish a national creative writing program and annual competition in Indonesia. Upon her return to the US, she worked to further build cultural awareness through the sale of Indonesian textiles, internationally inspired jewelry, and study abroad programs. The social impact of her efforts and travels inspired her to help other business leaders redefine business success beyond profit. Since 2010, Jessica has been actively supporting young social entrepreneurs through organizing events, fundraising, recruiting mentors, and facilitating workshops. Alongside these activities, she managed the operations of The Future Leaders Institute and the establishment of SoBiz: Beyond Profit.
She received her MBA from Hult International Business School, and BA from University of Richmond with studies in Rhetoric & Communication, Music and Arts Management. As a result of her work and study experience in the US, UK, Mexico and Indonesia, she is uniquely poised and passionate to support Toniic’s growing network of global impact investors and social entrepreneurs.
