Hi! I'm Jessica, and I'm passionate about building communities through technology and music for all.
I've worked toward improved youth access to arts education through the School District of Philadelphia’s ArtsRising initiative, and as a Yale undergrad (04-08), taught for K-12 enrichment programs in New Haven, CT; Palo Alto, CA; San Jose, CA, and San Francisco.
As a violist, I studied at the Curtis Institute of Music and The Juilliard School, and founded Chamber Music by the Bay, a series that brings interactive concerts to youth and communities throughout the SF Bay Area.
I've built my skills in problem solving, self-reflection, communication, and teamwork through intensive musical training, collaboration, and professional performance experience. Most of all, I'm interested in improving our world through educational opportunities, and am excited about initiatives that embody the spirit of learning by doing.
You'll find me happily supporting the growth of the incredible engineering, product & design teams at Dropbox HQ in San Francisco. Catch me otherwise pining after corgi dogs anywhere, viola strapped to my back and iced tea in hand!
Here's more of my musical background!
