Jessica_JanasiewiczFollowing graduation from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Jessica moved to Atlanta to work in the public schools as a 4th grade teacher. For six years she taught at Cary Reynolds Elementary school, a school characterized by its large population of low-income, immigrant students. During this time she earned her M.Ed. in Literacy, acquiring the expertise needed to help students build their literacy skills and better serve their needs.

These experiences increased her desire to improve the experiences of traditionally underserved populations and also illustrated the important role policy plays in the education of young people. To be better prepared to reach her goals, she moved to New York City to pursue a M.A. in Politics and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. During her time in New York, she also worked for Say Yes to Education, a non-profit organization seeking to increase the educational success of inner city children and worked as a Domestic Policy Intern for the William J. Clinton Foundation.

After attaining her M.A. from Columbia, Jessica returned to Florida and joined the Mixon and Associates team. Since her arrival, Jessica has lobbied extensively for the various school districts the firm represents throughout the State, as well as the Florida Association for School Administrators, the Florida Association of District Instructional Materials Administrators and the Florida High School Athletic Association. She has also worked to advance the interests of the Independent Funeral Directors of Florida and the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants, among other clients.

Jessica is a member of the Florida Education Legislative Liaisons, the Florida Association of School Administrators and is on the Board of the Florida Missing Endangered Persons Information Clearinghouse.
