Jessica started at the LANL Foundation in 2021 as the Early Childhood Program Associate before being promoted to her current role as Early Childhood Education Coordinator. Jessica brings over 15 years of customer service and administrative experience to her position. Since having her son in 2020, she has been working with the Growing Up New Mexico program, as well as the Las Cumbres Early Education Program – enjoying being able to participate in home visits and book readings.
Raised in Los Lunas, New Mexico, Jessica became interested in childhood education after becoming a foster parent in Valencia County. It was then she realized that our children need a voice to stand up for them and to make changes.
