Jessica joined Audubon Vermont in January as a Environmental Policy Intern. This is her final year at Vermont Law School, where she is pursuing a Juris Doctor and Masters of Environmental Law and Policy. Jessica is a lifelong New Englander, hailing from Salem Massachusetts, where she grew up exploring historic towns and hiking through salt marshes. Before cracking open casebooks at Vermont Law School, Jessica worked for Congressman Seth Moulton (MA-06) and, before that, the City of Beverly. Jessica holds a Bachelor of Science in geography and English from Salem State University. Her research focused on fossil fuel divestment, marine spatial planning, and environmental justice. Jessica lives in Royalton with her partner Lizzie, and their rescued husky-mix, Holly. She enjoys gardening, hiking, collecting antique maps, and drinking iced coffee year-round.
