A full-time faculty member in the Department of Occupational Therapy at Tufts University, Jessica has a BS from Boston University and a DPT from MGH-Institute of Health Professions. She is an International Alpine Skiing Medical Classifier for the International Paralympic Committee and Head of Alpine Medical Classification for the US Paralympics.
Jess has been involved in NEDS since the age of eight, when her sister, Kim, became a student and her parents began volunteering as coaches. She began coaching when she was old enough and now volunteers as a PSIA Level I Alpine and Level III Adaptive coach. Jess has stated, "over 25 years ago, NEDS gave my family a sense of hope and joy through the avenue of adaptive sports. Today, I continue to see the same dedication, compassion, and hope from our volunteers to every student and family."
