Jessica is the Managing Partner at InterestCurve Global. In her career as a development professional, she has written hundreds of successful proposals for organizations and businesses. In the last decade, she has successfully secured over $14.5 million in funds from individuals, trusts, foundations, and organizations, as well as state and national government entities through grant submissions, annual fund donations, and major gift fundraising.
Beyond this, Jessica has in-depth experience in developing and executing digital communication strategies and plans that have been used to promote newly published books, help nonprofits to launch fundraising campaigns, and develop outreach strategies for organizations.
Her background includes a M.A. in Social and Developmental Psychology from Brandeis University and a B.A. in Psychology from Claremont McKenna College. As well, Jessica has completed a Certificate of Leadership in Development from the University of Denver's Institute for Leaders in Development (ILD) and is in the process of completing her Graduate Certificate in Monitoring and Evaluation from American University.
Jessica lives with her partner, Akaluck, and spends a great deal of her off-time sweeping up messes made by Stanley, their very furry dog. When not being a dog mom, she is a tireless advocate of the importance of the impact sector and never misses an opportunity to engage people in acts of philanthropy and social good. Jessica is based in Bangkok, Thailand, but often returns home to the United States to visit friends, family, and clients.
