As part of the Community Engagement team, Jessica Coughlin produces special events for the station and coordinates marketing efforts to connect with WBUR listeners.
Jessica is from Brookline and has a degree in Anthropology from The George Washington University. She interned with the WBUR newsroom as well as Weekend Edition Saturday. Recently she returned to Boston after five years in Chicago working in sponsorship consulting at International Events Group and marketing communications for local food and beverage businesses, including Goose Island Beer Company.
Jessica is a lover of live music and travels across the country to see her favorite bands. She founded Field Day, an annual color war at Summer Camp Music Festival outside of Chicago, with everything from tug-o-war and kickball to a spelling bee and pizza eating competition.
Her constant companion is an irresistibly adorable corgi named Gumbo.
