Since 2006, Jessica has been known at Cascadia for her attention to detail and data-driven approach to zero waste planning, program evaluation, and development of programs and policies that result in measurable resource conservation and pollution prevention. As the leader of Cascadia’s Zero Waste practice area, she has worked on Oregon DEQ’s Materials Management Vision for 2050 as well as city and airport sustainable materials management plans. Jessica also spends a statistically significant portion of her time on evaluations and surveys to measure the behavior change impacts of regional and statewide stormwater education programs including Washington’s statewide Low Impact Development Trainings, natural yard care education programs in Snohomish and Thurston counties, and STORM’s Don’t Drip and Drive campaign.
When not crunching numbers or writing clear and approachable reports, Jessica provides data visualization solutions, reviews work products as part of our in-house Editorial Board, and brews some serious iced tea. Jessica graduated from Whitman College summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Economics.
