Jessica Jones thrives on applying an economics lens to solving messy intractable problems. Her 20-year career has spanned a spectrum of organizations across the global health and development space including the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, the World Bank, academia, U.S. government, and non-profit organizations, with a focus on ensuring equitable access to healthy and sustainable living at all income levels. She has spent the past decade working exclusively in global health to improve health access for low-income users, particularly for women-centered, funding-challenged areas such as maternal and neonatal health, medical oxygen, HIV prevention, and cervical cancer care. Jessica is currently a director in the Global Health Division of Chemonics supporting a portfolio of activities to improve private sector health markets. She holds an M.A. in International Affairs from George Washington University and a B.A. in English and International Relations from the College of William & Mary.
