Undergraduate: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Medical School: University of California, San Diego School of Medicine
Jessica was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she developed a love of cloudy weather and various ethnic cuisines. She attended MIT for college, majoring in brain and cognitive sciences and minoring in music while writing regularly for the student newspaper. After graduation she worked in healthcare consulting in Boston and San Francisco for three years. She spent her weekends volunteering at the local children’s hospital, which inspired her to pursue a career in pediatrics. Jessica went to UC San Diego for medical school, but found the sun oppressive, and is excited to move back east to begin residency at Brown. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, practicing piano and accordion, petting her cat, and playing video games. She is interested in a potential career in adolescent medicine or clinical informatics.
