Chief Mentor + Special Projects Curator
Josephine, 18, Kenya
Jess's love for We Are Family began in 2008 when she was selected to be a mentor to Josephine, a Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leader from Kenya. The Mentorship proved to be a life changing experience. In 2010, Jess was appointed Chief Mentor for Three Dot Dash to run and continue to develop the Mentor program. Tapping into her past life as a brand consultant, she also contributes to create strategic content driven programs to help further the WAFF + 3DD brands. Jess is Founder and Director of the U.S. chapter of MEAK (Medical and Educational Aid to Kenya) and currently has a documentary film in development. Prior to her work in Africa, Jess was a successful producer for the world's top fashion shows and events (Gucci, Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger – to name a few), an owner of her own branding and marketing business at 24 (selling it to her partner two years later), and the Director of Special Events at Vogue magazine. She studied at Hunter College and the London School of Journalism.
