Jessica is committed to shaping the next generation of female leaders in manufacturing and engineering. She serves as a mentor and advisor to numerous university organizations, including more than 90 women in her former sorority. As an active member of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Jessica has served as a SWENext advisor and mentored new members of the group. Over the last four years, she has chaired the SWE’s Engineering Expo, which is a free, one-day event for children in grades K-8 in the Wichita, Kansas, area that promotes STEM activities. Under her leadership, the event has grown exponentially, with attendance tripling during her tenure to over 3000 participants and doubling the number of STEM booths. 

Jessica is actively engaged in the STEM community. Her strong belief that STEM education is the critical foundation for building our future economy motivated her to become a founding member of the Spirit Women in Engineering Professions & Technology group, which aims to increase the number of female leaders in manufacturing by offering support and networking opportunities to its members, while promoting professional development, leadership and technical education.
