Who We Are - Meet Our Team
Jessica Dannelley (she/her),
Tucson Trip Leader
Jess (she/her) grew up playing in the red dirt of Sedona, beginning her lifelong love of the outdoors. Inspired by nature in her very own backyard, she became interested in hiking, camping, running, and mountain biking. A lover of travel, Jess likes to visit various local, state, national, and international parks. Her favorite national park is Grand Canyon, where she was taken on a youth backpacking trip. At The University of Arizona, Jess discovered her passion for working with kids and now serves as a first-grade teacher in Tucson. Jess hopes to inspire youth to get outside through exploration and photography. She is excited to return to the Parks in Focus® team as a summer trip leader.
