Jessica is Alley Cat Allies’ Associate Director of Development. She manages the Development team to secure resources for our vital work for cats, and manages the team responsible for our quarterly newsletters and other donor communications. Her expertise in databases, reporting, communication, visual arts, management and donor care inspires her team to work with our supporters to save more cats’ lives.
Jessica graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with dual degrees in fashion design and photography. She began her career in museums, where she found her interest in working in development departments. When she made her way to Alley Cat Allies, she brought years of fundraising and marketing experience to benefit our loyal supporters. Jessica has also fostered cats for Alley Cat Allies—up to four at a time!
Today, Jessica lives with her dog Howard, who is extremely spoiled and cries when she doesn’t let him jump on the couch to cuddle with her.
