Jessica Abrams (email Council Member Abrams) - Jessica Abrams is originally from Portsmouth, New Hampshire and attended the University of New Hampshire for her undergraduate degree in Communications and English. While at UNH, Jessica served on the Student Senate, was an elected leader in the Kappa Delta sorority, led the UNH Equestrian team as point rider and participated in the ski club, along with a variety of other intramural sports and activities.
A combined love of adventure and the mountains led Jessica to relocate to Truckee/Tahoe after graduation. She quickly fell in love with the area; with the spirit of our community, the connection we have to nature and the outdoors, and the overall quality of life in the region.
Currently, Jessica holds a Master’s degree in Personal Financial Planning, is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner (CFP®) and one of only 24 people in the state of California with the ‘Master Planner Advanced Studies’ designation. Jessica works full time in private practice here in Truckee.
Passionate about volunteering and being involved with the community, Jessica is an active member of several local organizations including the Rotary Club of Truckee, the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce and Tahoe Regional Young Professionals. She collaborates with the Homes for Our Troops organization by providing Pro-Bono financial planning services to severely wounded veterans, and teaches Financial Planning through Sierra College Community Education.
Jessica is proud to be raising her 2 young children in Truckee, and cherishes spending as much time as possible with them, especially playing outdoors. She also enjoys skiing, horseback riding, gardening, tennis, reading and is an avid traveler, having visited over 40 countries around the world.
