Staff Spotlight: Jessica Modriskey
Jessica joined our team in June! She is a recent graduate of Florida State University where she double majored in Environmental Studies and Geography as well as minored in Urban and Regional Planning. Before joining Conservation Florida, she spent a year interning with the Florida Fish and Wildlife’s Bear Management Program. During this time, Jessica found a love for conservation and wildlife management through data work, field work, and outreach. She also spent time working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom where she advocated for Disney’s Conservation Fund.
Growing up a military child, away from her family’s home state of Florida, Jessica has an acute appreciation for Florida’s natural beauty and unique wildlife. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, and spending time outdoors.
I have always hated the question “where are you from?” because I never knew how to answer it. Being raised in a military family, a “hometown” never really existed. The only place that has ever felt like home was my beautiful state of Florida.
