Jess is a PR Manager in Walker Sands’ Seattle office. She leads PR strategy and outreach efforts for B2B clients across the Walker Sands network.

Her previous work experience in Austin, TX provided Jess with a solid B2B tech foundation — she has worked for a startup that was acquired by Gartner, was the PR Manager of the Austin Chamber of Commerce and worked with cybersecurity clients during her time at SHIFT Communications. Upon moving to Seattle in 2017, Jess freelanced with clients in the VR/AR, IoT and verifiable credentials spaces.

Jess graduated summa cum laude from The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) with a Bachelor’s degree in public relations and a minor in psychology.
