Jessica is the Associate Director, Research & HQ Operations supporting our Cambridge site. Most recently, she worked as a Lab Manager at Celsius Therapeutics where she helped move the company from their incubator space to their permanent home, set up an in-house vivarium, streamlined processes in the lab to improve workflow and increase productivity, and was the founding member of the Fun Committee. Prior to Celsius, Jessica was a Vivarium Manager at H3 Biomedicine where she started up a new animal facility, attained AAALAC accreditation, helped design a lab addition, and ran a few animal studies when the in vivo scientists needed an extra set of hands. Jess has a background in Animal Science and Technology, and has a great passion for animal welfare, organization, and lean management. When she is not working, she enjoys playing with her red heeler mix Gunner, hanging out with her husband and two boys, listening to Spanish music, and vacationing in the Dominican Republic.
