Jess’ interest in psychology started at a very young age. As soon as she was old enough to do so, Jess became a volunteer Crisis Counselor; there she was able to turn her childhood interest into a passion for helping others. Jess graduated with a B.A in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles. Before joining the PTT team she worked as a Project Coordinator & Research Assistant-focusing on mental health research in youth & marginalized communities. At PTT, Jess likes to use a combination of her academic knowledge and past experiences to connect with clients and offer them the support they need to succeed in the program.
