Jess is a Maine native and graduate of the University of Maine. She received her Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs in 2017. Her studies centered around world cultures, populations, and languages and she spent much of her time learning in Spanish and French. During her undergraduate career, Jess was involved with many multicultural events and programs that brought both the international and domestic communities closer together. This included participating in activities such as CultureFest and International Dance Festival with the OIP as well as working with the Modern Languages & Classics Department to facilitate World Languages Day for the area’s local high schoolers. Pursuing this passion further, Jess joined the OIP Team in 2021 to assist applicants with the admissions process and provide a welcoming introduction to the UMaine community. She looks forward to continuing her work bridging the gaps between diverse groups of people with her knowledge of campus and the local area.
