Jess grew up outdoors in all four corners of the U.S. After one year at
the National University of Costa Rica, she settled into the California
redwoods to play Division II soccer at Humboldt State University. She
graduated in 2013 with degrees in Anthropology, Spanish, and
Environmental Ethics. Over the next five years, Jess guided in nineteen

and train-hopping in Vietnam, to teaching survival skills in the Utah
desert. In law school, she worked as a Legal Intern for Cascadia
Wildlands and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Jess is a
Wayne Morse Fellow and Environmental and Natural Resource Law Fellow,
