Head of School
As Head of School, Jessica is responsible for bringing the Fusion program to the community while maintaining the Fusion culture, and is ultimately responsible for the wellbeing and prosperity of the school.
Jessica attended Penn State University where she received a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Health and Human Development. Following graduation, she moved to the D.C. Metro area and began working as a Special Education Teacher/Counselor in the Education Services Department of a private behavioral health facility, where she earned an Innovators Award and served as President of their Employee Advisory Group. Realizing that she had found her niche in bridging the gap between education and mental health, she pursued a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology from George Mason University and graduated magna cum laude. Following a move to New York City, she joined Fusion Academy Upper West Side as Director of Student Development and was later promoted to Assistant Director. Returning to the D.C. Metro area in a few years later, she was thrilled to join the team that opened Fusion Academy in Tysons. Most recently, in October 2020, she relocated to the Loudoun campus to take on the Head of School role—and is loving every minute it!
Jessica enjoys doing all things in the great outdoors, photography, interior design, skiing, traveling, and baking.
