Jessica joined the Deerfield community in 1995. Her responsibilities have varied over the years, but helping to produce the award-winning Deerfield Magazine has been a constant in her career; she became Managing Editor in 2009, and assumed the role of the Academy's Director of Communications as of July 1, 2017.
Jessica lives with her husband (Todd), daughters (Piper '21 and Penley), two cats (George and Kira), and one large dog (a Saint Bernard named Simba) in nearby Greenfield. Her favorite past-time is reading a good book, but knitting and gardening come in close seconds. Having grown up just west of Deerfield in Conway, MA, Jessica has a deep appreciation for this beautiful rural area, and enjoys exploring it with her family. Jessica attended Trinity Washington University and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
