Experience

911 Dispatcher // Montgomery County Police, MD
3 years
People only call 911 on the worst day of their lives, so as a dispatcher/calltaker, I always had to be at my best. When answering phones, I remained **calm** under pressure and **de-escalated** stressful situations. I maintained high **standards** of customer service while providing emergency instructions to callers. While on a dispatch radio, I **anticipated** and **prioritized** the needs of up to 50 officers at a time. I also **allocated** resources during dynamic and ever-changing emergency events. Maintaining accurate event information and regular communication with my officers built trust and ensured a good working relationship.
Team Leader // Institute for Cultural Communicators
1 year
After working as an intern (see below), I returned to lead a 10-person intern team the following year. My primary responsibilities included **overseeing project timelines** and **content creation**. In addition, I **edited** conference curriculum and **improved** programming. I also created a **system** for gathering and organizing all the materials created for each conference—which enabled these materials to be passed on to future intern teams. Before I tackled this challenge, there was no system, which meant that most information got lost from year to year.
Intern // Institute for Cultural Communicators
1 year
I worked with a team of seven other interns to **plan**, **write**, and **facilitate** three-day public speaking and communication conferences for students K-12. I **developed** interactive and engaging curriculum for 11-12 year olds. I also **organized** and **led** a new team of 14-18 year olds at each conference to set up, tear down, and maintain the facility. In addition, I **wrote**, **rehearsed**, and **presented** speeches on dozens of platforms across the country.

Projects

Project
I built an operations tech stack in a month.

I love systems, strategies, and making things better. I'm interested in operations but haven't had exposure to a lot of the commonly used applications. So I learned them—and created tutorials to teach others.

Project
I blogged every day for thirty days.

I showed up every single day for a month, put fingers to keyboard, wrote something, and posted what I wrote.

Project
I learned about startup roles by interviewing professionals in each field.

I explored common roles at startups—marketing, sales, operations, and customer success—by interviewing professionals in each field and learned how each of these roles is vital to the success of a startup.

Project
I built a second brain to store, organize, and retrieve digital information.

Using Evernote, I've created a valuable library of articles and resources from across the internet.

Project
I created a Wordpress website to showcase my writing and projects.

Hey there, I'm Jessica. I scrapped the ol' b&w resume and created a website instead.

Project
I managed dynamic teams, hosted dozens of conferences, and traveled 1000s of miles.

I led 10 interns ages 18-21 as they wrote, designed, prepared, and rehearsed a three-day public speaking conference for students K-12, all in eight weeks over the summer—then hosted this conference in cities across the continental United States.

Project
I wanted to learn about film, so I started writing about the movies I watch.

Rather than watching movies as mere entertainment, I wanted to take a more active approach to one of my favorite pastimes. Now, I don't just watch movies—I write about them, too.
