Jessica has felt a calling towards women' s health since she was a young teenager, and is committed to serving women and their families both in pregnancy and across their lifespan. While completing her undergraduate degree, Jessica worked for a free student-run health clinic serving uninsured Latinos in Sacramento, CA and as a research assistant for clinical studies on breastfeeding.

She also enjoys reading, swimming and practicing yoga.
Why I Work at Neighborcare:
I am a midwife because I am inspired by the strength of women and see midwifery as a way to foster empowerment and build communities, which is also central to the mission of Neighborcare Health. I am energized by the work that midwives do and delight in opportunities to facilitate learning and support women during pregnancy and birth. I have always felt drawn towards working with underserved populations and am constantly inspired by the diverse population of women we serve at Neighborcare.
