OPBlog: Introduction

Hi! My name is Jessie Friedmann, and I joined OPB in January as the Policy & Communications Analyst.

I have my Bachelor’s degree in Policy, Planning & Development from USC, and my Master’s degree from the UW School of Social Work, with a concentration in Administration & Policy. I have worked in local, state, and federal policy on education, child welfare, and mental health in both Washingtons, as well as California.

Since joining the OPB team, I have enjoyed applying my experience to help analyze policy and create clear communications about the amazing and diverse work being done here at the UW.

Please don’t hesitate to send me an email if you have any questions or feedback. Thanks so much!
