Why I Care About Recycling
“Through personal and professional experiences, I’ve learned that recycling is not equally accessible by all. I am passionate about understanding the systemic exclusion of underserved and under-supported people in recycling and being among the individuals leading and committed to addressing those inequities to catalyze system change.”
Personal Passions and Interests
When she’s not raising money to support the mission and work of The Partnership, you can find Jessica studying as an MBA candidate and training her eight-month-old Goldendoodle, Levi Levine.
