Meet Jessie Dexter
Hi everyone! I am the new Program Specialist with the Office of Drug Policy and the new e-newsletter editor.
A little about me - I'm an Idaho native, born and raised in Sandpoint, Idaho. I attended the University of Idaho for my undergraduate studies and received my Master of Public Administration degree from Boise State University.
I came to ODP from Boise State University, where I coordinated the Student Basic Needs Collaborative and did program development and advocacy on student food and housing insecurity in higher education across the state. Prior to that, I did fund development work with the Treasure Valley YMCA and served as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer with Global Talent Idaho and the Idaho Office of Refugees.
I'm so excited to join the amazing team at ODP and work with all of our partners on substance misuse prevention across Idaho!
