Jessica McGinley

Society and Environment

Placement: Carbon180 - Federal Policy Assistant
Oakland, California

Jessie is an eccentric and down-to-earth second year studying Society and Environment at UC Berkeley. Jessie’s passion for environmentalism stems from her time at YMCA Camp Kon-O-Kwee canoeing on the Allegheny River, backpacking along the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail, and swimming in Deer Valley Lake. She grew up in the under-rated city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Go Steelers! Jessie has a wide array of work experience from being a Barista, Camp Counselor, Program Associate for the University's campus green fund, and Research Apprentice analyzing different countries' climate policy structures. She is extremely passionate about her sisterhood at AXO and loves to casework at The Suitcase Clinic. When she isn't working or studying, you can probably spot Jessie at a concert, geo-caching around the city, hiking the firetrails, or watching That 70's Show
