As a one-man PR shop, Jessica is always looking for ways to work smarter, not harder. She enjoys building her network through the use of social media, collaborating with other passionate professionals, telling her district’s story, and sharing how the use of technology, social media, and digital marketing can transform the educational experience for all stakeholders.

Jessica has a Master of Education in Instructional Leadership from Sam Houston State University and a Master of Arts in Strategic Communication and Innovation from Texas Tech University. She is a mother of two boys, a people-driven educator, and a passionate believer in stakeholder engagement through positive communication.
