Academic Assistant 2015 - 2016

Jessica Anderson graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in classical studies with art and art history related fields. After living and working in Texas for a few years, she was accepted to the graduate program in historic preservation at The University of Texas at Austin’s School of Architecture.
