Recognizing the need for quality, interactive science education in underprivileged areas in the US, Jessica searched for ways to help remedy this social issue. From her years of experience as a tutor and teacher, she felt that she could make a difference. Once she discovered that KAST shared her vision, she founded a branch for Virginia. The branch grew to 8 high schools and 11 elementary schools. Today, Jessica serves as CEO of KAST, managing operations within the organization, mentoring branches, leading meetings, and more. Jessica is a Computer Science Major at Virginia Tech's College of Engineering as a Pamplin Leader. In her spare time, Jessica enjoys reading, volleyball, and table tennis.
