Jessica’s professional background is in coaching and counseling. She earned her B.S. in Human Development, her M.A. in Human Services, and her Ph.D. in Christian Counseling. Jessica has owned her own coaching practice for almost a decade, and she loves helping people and organizations get “unstuck”. In 2013, Jessica published her first book on relational recovery. Jessica has great hope for the future of Multnomah because she sees God moving here. She says, “The Lord led me to Multnomah to serve students and to foster changes that would allow us to become a place where all students can feel a sense of belonging.”

In her free time, Jessica loves to read nonfiction books, and she is constantly learning. She also enjoys singing and music, and her favorite place in the world is her home that she shares with her daughters and her husband.
