Jessica is an Atlanta native who holds an M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition from GSU. She is currently a Ph.D. student focusing on the convergence of technology, literacy, and culture. She parlays her love of art and media into this work and, while comfortable with traditional composition, she is also comfortable with other media and genres. Her favorite part of working with students is the collaborative brainstorming that can occur, although she is happy to help with all aspects of the creative process, including grammar, structure, and organization. Making the puzzle pieces fit is Jessica’s specialty.
