Jessica joined The Wildlife Society in January 2012 after finishing her master’s degree in science journalism at Boston University. She has previously written for The Scientist and IEEE Pulse magazines. Jessica also holds a bachelor’s in biology from Cornell University and a master’s in environmental microbiology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After her undergrad, she spent six years leading habitat restoration projects and conducting wildlife surveys in southern California and is excited to return to her roots by writing about wildlife and environmental issues now. Originally from Iowa, Jessica has lived all over the U.S. and in France, but never in D.C., and is anxious to explore the area.
