Jessica Freeborn started working with Students on Ice in June 2012. Her appreciation for the environment and the outdoors stems from her travels around Canada and the world, including Europe, Asia and North America. Jessica holds a Bachelor of Arts, Combined Honours degree in Anthropology and English from McMaster University and an Advanced Diploma in Applied Museum Studies from Algonquin College.
Jessica has worked as a Research and Collections Assistant at national and international museums, including the British Museum in London, England and the Canadian Museum of Civilization. As a Technical Writer for the Canadian Museum of Nature, she wrote a document entitled “A Collections Development Strategy for Canada’s Natural History Museums” which outlined sustainable management practices for Canada’s natural history collections. Most recently, Jessica was the Coordinator for the Alliance of Natural History Museums of Canada. Her work with youth extends to her time as an Early Education and Teaching Assistant where she supervised and taught daily educational lessons.
When not at work, Jessica can be found hiking and cave spelunking in the Ottawa region or enjoying a good book at the cottage located north of Parry Sound.
