Jessica grew up in border city Juarez, Mexico. It was not until college that she moved to Austin, Texas to pursue a career in accounting. She has a Bachelors of Business Administration from Texas State University. Her goal was to find a niche in accounting for nonprofit and work for a company that mirrored her core values.
Jessica first joined Whole Foods Market Global Support as an Associate Accountant for the General Ledger Team, where she provided some accounting support to Whole Planet Foundation. She recently transitioned to the Whole Planet Foundation Team in early 2015 as the Administrator of Business and Finance, where she will continue doing accounting, financial reporting, analysis and regulatory compliance work for the Foundation.
Like almost every new Austinite, Jessica enjoys jogging around Town Lake with her dog, trying every food truck on her way, live music and festivals. She also enjoys playing, watching and having discussions about soccer.
