Hi! I’m Jessica. I’m a writer living in the DC metropolitan area. I mostly write essays, but dabble in fiction as well.
I hold an MA from Emory and my background is in African American Literature. Usually, you can find my writings on the Washington Post. Though, I’ve also written for SheKnows, Baby Gizmo, xoJane, BlogHer, Babble, and more.
In 2014 I was one of the cast members of the Listen To Your Mother DC show. And in 2015, I was awarded as a honoree in the BlogHER Voices of the Year Impact category for this essay I wrote for The Washington Post.
