Jessie Burch joined Ross Strategic in 2016, where she dedicates her passion and expertise to projects related to sustainable management of water sector utilities, environmental public health, and climate change mitigation. Previous to joining Ross, Jessie worked as a PiLA Fellow with the U.N. World Food Program for Latin America and the Caribbean, supporting the region’s governments in improving nutrition and food security through social protection programs and policies.
Jessie holds a B.A. in international relations and Spanish magna cum laude from Trinity University, where she focused her studies on Latin America. Despite a love for travel and fascination with other cultures, Jessie is a typical Pacific Northwesterner at heart. She spends as much time as possible getting lost in the mountains, forests, and deserts of Washington and Oregon.
