Our museums remain closed due to COVID-19. While LA County Public Health has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, allowing for the reopening of museums on June 12, our museums are still slowly welcoming back staff and are in the process of planning for new health and safety protocols in our galleries and gardens. Therefore, we will not be reopening until later in the summer. Sign up here to be the first to know when we will safely re-open to the public and in the meantime, stay connected from home.

Since 2009, Jessie has been working within the museum family in varying capacities, most recently joining the Community Science Program. Prior to that, Jessie was a Gallery Interpreter within the Museum's Education Department.

As an undergraduate, Jessie attended UCLA where she completed a degree in Anthropology, focusing on visual ethnographic work. Jessie is currently enrolled at Miami University, O.H., for a Masters in Biological Conservation. Her graduate research looks at visual media and social media uses in conservation and outreach, in particular as a supplementary tool in aiding equitable scientific access for marginalized communities and developing science-identities that may lead to advocacy or activism in relation to their environment.
