Jessica Anderson

Ex-Day Staff

“I feel like kids don’t have anyone to just talk to anymore.”

Spend five minutes with Jessica, and you’ll understand why she’s working towards a masters in school counseling at Trinity Washington University. “I really like talking to kids and getting their perspectives,” she says. Drawn out of her shell by the counselor she had in elementary school, Jessica hopes to similarly support students at the middle-school level. Jessica joined the FCS Ex-Day team in 2017 and likes the diversity in the school. Jessica has a four-year-old daughter, Penelope, and not a lot of spare time, but when she can she enjoys re-reading the Harry Potter series.
