Jessica Barraco is an Orange County-native, who went away to school to study journalism and PR at the University of Colorado at Boulder. There, she spent time writing stories about the local community, which included some investigative journalism regarding the JonBenet Ramsey case (which took place in Boulder – she loves a good mystery), and also including a contribution to the Denver Post in 2007.
Barraco spent her summers in LA, dabbling in music publicity, corporate and consumer PR for Hill & Knowlton and writing fashion- and music-related articles for 944 magazine.
Currently, she is working at Ketchum, managing corporate accounts. Her interests are fashion, philanthropy and everything concerning pop culture.
In her spare time, Barraco is penning a novel, loves spending time with her family and getting out on the “LA scene.” She hopes to bring a brand-new, social aspect to the world of PRSA-YP with the addition of new mixers and fun networking events.
