Jessica joins World Savvy as an Executive Assistant to Dana Mortenson, our CEO and Co-Founder.
She recently moved to the twin cities from Dublin, Ireland. Jessica has a degree in social work with further studies in counseling and psychotherapy. Her work with young people in creative, educational environments led her to the National Gallery of Ireland’s education team. There she pioneered and developed a new initiative to engage young people in their creativity on a national platform. This role led to many exciting opportunities including co-curating the first-ever exhibition by and for young people and speaking at a TEDx event.
Jessica loves the city of Detroit and met her husband there as an intern in a soup kitchen in teen employment, addiction, and art therapy programming. Her goal in life is to educate young people about their own potential.
In her personal life, Jessica enjoys illustration and web/logo design, and film photography. Her proudest life achievement is being a mother to twin girls.
