She grew up outside of Philadelphia and left the area to attend the University of Virginia in 2002. After finishing her degree in Psychology, Jess moved to Washington, DC where she started her career with The Advisory Board Company. During 7 years with The Advisory Board, Jess learned the ins and outs of business operations and also earned a Master’s degree in Organizational Management from George Washington University.
After meeting Koki in 2007, Jess quickly became interested in Real Estate and helped out with the business whenever possible. In 2013, they made it official, and Jess formally joined Team Koki as the Director of Operations to support the growing business and expanding team.
In her free time, Jess is busy chasing around two young children, exploring DC, taking pictures, renovating houses, and working on DIY projects.
