email@example.com | Jessica Merrill is the Communications Manager at the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence (the Partnership). Her goal is to create a rich, engaging dialogue across California to increase knowledge of domestic violence as a public health crisis–and to promote equitable solutions that prevent trauma and support survivors. By providing communications tools to the Partnership’s member programs and all Californians, she works to shift social norms that contribute to domestic violence through social and traditional media advocacy.
With nine years of strategic communications experience, Jessica began her career in the affordable housing realm. Prior to that, she earned her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Sociology and American Studies from UC Davis, and obtained her Master of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Sacramento State University. She has a love for the brainstorming process, graphic design, and supporting youth leadership.
