Born and raised in Eugene, Jess brings experience and a passion for nonprofit work to the FA Research Fund. Before joining the FARF team, she spent years volunteering and working in nonprofits, most recently at Volunteers in Medicine in Lane County. "I'm driven by work that allows me to see real-life impact in the communities I serve." At FARF, Jess assists with fundraising and administration. She is the smiling face behind the scenes who processes donations, issues tax receipts, and is the point of contact for any and all donation questions.
A true Oregonian, Jess loves exploring the outdoors with her family. She's a big track and field fan and is a comic book nerd at heart!
