About Jessica: As a Master's prepared Nurse with a specialization in Healthcare Education I practice half of my nursing career as an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) and Unite-Based Educator for Johns Hopkins Hospital. I realized my passion lies in creating, leading, and participating in positive social change specific to improving public healthcare. I left the inpatient acute care field to direct four governmental statewide health care programs for Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services as a Nurse Consultant and Administrator. Though dedicated to my career, I also coach soccer two seasons a year and run a Girl Scouts Troop. I love spending time with my husband, three children, and two dogs, especially beach-side at the Jersey Shore.
