Individual Giving Manager
Jessica joined TLC’s development team in February 2019. She’s a white femme cis co-conspirator from a working-class background, and believes that having a diverse base of movement support, from a range of sources, is key for momentum, sustainability, and responsiveness.
Jessica has worked with a range of Bay Area nonprofits to grow their resources and practice greater intentionality in donor outreach, with a focus on major giving and relationship cultivation models. To her, fund development ultimately means creating and facilitating opportunities for wealth-sharing, inviting supporters to be part of transformation.
Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Jessica has lived in Oakland/occupied Ohlone territory for nine years. She came to the Bay Area to study gender, sexuality, and 20th-century literature at Mills College, and has remained in Oakland since graduating. She has also worked as a freelance editor for nonfiction and always loves a writing project.
