Soil and Water GrizzlyCorps Fellow

Jessica joined MCRCD as a GrizzlyCorps fellow in 2022. She graduated from Amherst College in 2020 with a B.A. in Geology and Russian, where her thesis research on paleoproterozoic gneisses in Montana introduced her to the joy of fieldwork. After her undergraduate study, Jessica worked as a research geologist for the USGS Earthquake Science Center, focusing on tsunamis and related geohazards. Her interest in climate action and land management, as well as a desire to get involved with environmental challenges close to home, led her to GrizzlyCorps and MCRCD, where she works in the soil and water programs.
