Jessica is currently an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Charles River Ventures. She loves the excitement of turning a core insight into a business that has a positive impact. At the age of 19, she started Jessica's Wonders, a baked goods company, out of her college dorm room. She raised $1M in funding her senior year (with braces) and grew it to national distribution. From there, she worked at Kraft Foods in brand management. In 2008, Jessica founded BabbaCo to invest in the future of parenting by helping families spend quality time together. BabbaCo was acquired in 2014 by Barefoot Books, where she served as President for 2 years.
