    Jessica Rodriguez


    Policy Fellow

    Being the daughter of an immigrant mother, it has been evident to Jessica that the many opportunities in her life were not a coincidence but the cumulative work of her mother and the community that stood behind her. Because of this support, Jessica was able to attend UC Berkeley and earn her B.A. in Political Science. After, she pursued a career in youth-serving and education-focused organizations. This included joining the founding team of the Richmond Promise, an college access and success organization in Richmond, CA, where she served as the Director of Operations & Partnerships. There she led the development of its finance, data management and analysis, and operational processes, and created a long-term strategy to maximize impact. Currently, Jessica is pursuing her M.B.A. at UCLA Anderson School of Management and focusing her studies on management consulting, social entrepreneurship, and venture capital.
