Jessica Backman

Director of Student Activities and Civic Engagement

Jessica graduated from Converse College in May of 2016 with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in psychology and business administration with a concentration in Human Resources, while at Converse she was SGA President her senior year, a student worker at the MEID for three years and a student worker in the Economics, Accounting and Business Department for a year.  Jessica also was a Community Advisor for two years in Dexter and in Cudd in her Sophomore and Junior years. She was a member of AAAS all four years, and secretary her junior year.

She had the opportunity to intern in Washington, DC with Isaacson, Miller — an executive search firm, who helped Converse with our 2015 Presidential search.  She has been working in Customer Service for over six years now.

She has twin little sisters and her hobbies include taking long walks down the aisles at Sephora. Her favorite thing about attending Converse would be that by coming here she was able to find life-long friends who she considers to be her sisters.
