Hi, my name is Jessica.


I specialize in longform journalism, and am passionate about exploring complex stories over the course of weeks or even months of reporting. Criminal justice is my bread and butter, but I’ll tackle any subject that involves great characters and compelling narrative.

I am currently on leave from the BBC, and am doing a fellowship at This American Life. If you have pitches that you think might work for the show, please get in touch!

I'm an alum of the St. Louis Riverfront Times, Minneapolis City Pages and Santa Cruz Weekly.
