Jessica Guzman joined Per Scholas as a Human Resource Admin for the Human Resources & Fiscal team. She was born and raised in Harlem and is one out of three siblings. Being part of a family that has always advocated the importance of education Jessica has become an advocate for similar organizations like Per Scholas. She attained a Bachelors of Science in Human Resource Management from SUNY Oswego and while her time there she provided assistance to the Educational Opportunity Program and their students. Jessica provided these students with academic support, life & study skills as well as financial assistance to aid in their success and entry in post-secondary education. It was then that her passion to help those in greater needs grew. Jessica is excited to be part of Per Scholas and contribute to helping those in underserved communities.
