Jessica Barquist

Director of Policy & Organizing

Jessica is the Director of Policy and Organizing at the Vermont Network. Jessica comes to the Vermont Network most recently from the Let’s Grow Kids Campaign where she spearheaded field organizing and community education projects. Prior to her work on that campaign, she was a practicing child psychologist, working primarily with adolescents, many of whom were survivors.

Jessica’s dedication to creating a world in which all people thrive led her to a focus on public policy and community organizing. Her mission is to empower others to use their voices for positive social change. She believes that true change is not only possible but within our power if we  are willing to stand up and speak our truth! Jessica finds her greatest sources of joy and inspiration from her three young children.
