I am available for consultation related to design, development, and implementation of education and public outreach (EPO) programs and activities. I am also available to consult on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) related to cultural change within organizations.

Excerpt from show on 8/5/20 when viewer asked "Does Jessica Harris have any advice for teen girls (college age, for example) who want to become an astronomers?"
As a Contract Specialist that has worked for Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) for almost 6 years, and still understands very little about all the amazingness that goes into the Day to Day of Launching the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), I must admit after sitting in on a few of Ms. Jessica Harris’ student workshops, when she worked at STScI, she gave me a greater understanding and appreciation for the research and time that goes into the launch of the JWST. The sessions was fun and interesting and the students, as well as myself, was fully engaged, enlightened, and was intrigued to learn more during the workshop due to Ms. Harris’ gift of being able to connect people to science in a fun and enlightening way. Thank you Ms. Harris for an amazing experience, all because of your gift to teach and inspire others to listen and learn.
