Jessie started at Northern Public Radio as an intern after transferring from Rock Valley College in her hometown. As a fresh graduate from NIU's journalism department, Jessie raked in experience at NIU's student-run television station, the Northern Television Center.
Jessie works as WNIJ's All Things Considered Producer, and briefly served as Morning Edition Producer. She enjoys the digital journalism aspect of the job and hunting down story ideas.
Her time is also spent reporting on social and human interest issues. She also has the pleasure of working with interns and showing them the ropes.
In her free time, she uses audio recording equipment to gather stories of hospice patients for their families. She also loves long-distance running and true crime.
At the station, she can often be found in the break room making really strong coffee.
