Jessica leads the planning and execution of Echoing Green events, ensuring that our engagements are accessible, inclusive, and highly impactful for our growing community.
Jessica is an event producer with over eight years of experience in higher education and the nonprofit sector. With incredible attention to detail and a structured logistical event flow, Jessica specializes in handling stressful event situations with grace. Before joining Echoing Green, Jessica planned cultivation and stewardship events for Development and Alumnae Relations at Barnard College. She led her team to plan and execute in-person, virtual, and hybrid events, including Barnard's Annual Gala, the College's largest fundraiser, which raised an average of $3 million for student financial aid.
