Bio

Jess graduated in May of 2014 from Tufts University with a degree in International Relations and a concentration in Global Health, Nutrition and the Environment. One month later she was in Haiti to launch Kouzin Dlo. Jess went to Haiti for the first time in the summer of 2013 and traveled to volunteer with 6 different organizations over the course of 3 months. She is passionate about social entrepreneurship as a mechanism to provide critical services and allow communities to meet their own needs in an aid dependent society.
