Jessica Braden

Program Coordinator

Jessica joined the Friends Life Community in November 2019 and was brought on as a full-time Program Coordinator. Originally from East Tennessee, she holds a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Tennessee Technological University and has lived in Nashville for the past three years.

Jessica fell in love with working with individuals with IDDs through being a team leader and mentor for a fellow co-worker from Lipscomb’s IDEAL Program. She hopes to further her education with a master’s degree in Special Education or Speech Language Pathology. Jessica is so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful organization that empowers the friends to grow and succeed in a creative environment!
