Jessie recently completed her BA in Art History at Brooklyn College. Since she moved to Brooklyn from Gainesville, Florida in 2005, she has embraced the cold weather by creating and marketing knitwear of her own original design. She is also a collaborative musician and recently lent her abilities to the White Wave Dance Festival of 2007 in DUMBO. Jessie is excited to begin her career in art history here at the Brooklyn Museum as a curatorial intern for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.
