Jessie is an Associate Editor at Education Dive, where she specializes in all things K-12. Before joining the Industry Dive team, she graduated from the University of Maryland with a B.A. in journalism, and she's spent time reporting at publications including CNN, McClatchy DC, USA TODAY and her college paper, The Diamondback. She originally hails from New Jersey, but after four years in the area, she's proud to call herself an honorary D.C. native. Outside the office, you can probably find her road biking, obsessing over dogs or talking about how desperately she needs a moviecation (yes, it's a word), yet hasn't done anything about it.
