About me


My name is Jessica Thompson. Originally from Cleveland, OH, I began my collegiate career at Kent State University in Kent, OH. After spending two years there I decided to transfer to the University of Minnesota where I completed my undergraduate degree in youth studies. Immediately following I moved to Ann Arbor, MI where I received my master’s in social work from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor.

I have devoted my professional career to assisting students from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds in making strong transitions from high school, to college, and onto their careers. Through my work I seek to empower students by equipping them with the skills, knowledge, and experiences needed to accomplish their educational and professional goals. I strive to build meaningful relationships with students by embracing diversity, being attentive to individual’s differences, and being an avid listener. As a graduate of the College of Education and Human Development I excited to continue this work in my role as an Academic Adviser.

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my puppy Milo! My hobbies include listening to various genres of music, going to concerts, traveling, and trying new and adventurous things.

We are committed to providing a comfortable, inclusive, and respectful environment for all members of our communities. If there is information you feel would be helpful for us to know, including disability or other accommodation needs, I invite you to share it with me directly or let the front desk know when you schedule an appointment.
