After studying political science at Western Oregon University, Jessica worked her way up the corporate ladder at a fortune 500 company for nearly a decade. In her last role with the corporation, she represented the Oregon region’s cross-functional and multifaceted interests regarding internal process changes at the national level. After a year of successfully securing corporate funding for her region’s interests, Jessica followed her passion for politics and pursued a career in lobbying, which she has been doing in Washington state since August of 2021.
Since starting JH Consulting, Jessica joined Christophersen Inc. and Boswell Consulting’s team and helped manage clients with a focus on policies that fall into capital budget, environmental, and transportation categories. She has direct experience in working with ports since starting. In just one year, a virtual year at that, she has fostered relationships with influential leaders and successfully helped navigate Washington state legislative structure.
