Position: Operations Team Specialist
Born and raised on the east side of Indianapolis, Jessica attended Warren Central High School and holds a B.S. in Journalism from Ball State University. While studying at Ball State in 2013, Jessica began coaching high school speech and debate in New Castle, IN. With only one year under her belt, Jessica was awarded 2014 Heartland District Volunteer of the Year. Coaching speech is what turned Jessica into the educator she is today. Since then Jessica has held many roles in schools from coach to substitute teacher, and even outside music programming. After graduating in December of 2016, Jessica’s interest in nonprofit work with a focus on education led her to Nine13sports.
While Jessica does not currently consider herself a ‘biker,’ twelve years of competitive dance taught her the importance of being active and staying active. To keep moving, Jessica loves to hike, rock climb, and of course, ride bikes. Jessica can also be found pursuing more artistic hobbies like writing, singing, or playing the guitar. Jessica currently lives in Indianapolis with her cat Peeta.
