Prior to joining the Trenton Health Team, Jessica spent seven years working in HIV and STD prevention services. She served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ethiopia for two years. While in Ethiopia she completed three projects; an organized female empowerment program, received funding to build a medical waste incinerator and public restroom. After completing her service Jessica returned to her hometown, Trenton and began her career in HIV and STD prevention services. Jessica worked with the Hyacinth Foundation as a Health Educator and worked directly with women living with HIV and facilitated support groups. She continued her work in prevention with Henry J. Austin Health Center as an HIV Linkage to Care Coordinator and PrEP counselor. Jessica later joined the NJ Department of Health, Division of STD, HIV and TB Services as a Disease Intervention Specialist to combat the spread of Syphilis and HIV in New Jersey. Jessica is extremely excited to work with the Trenton Health Team to support their vision of a healthy Trenton.
