Jesse Gardner (she/her/) no relation to Sara!

Program Manager


Jesse Gardner (who is not related to Sara, even though they have the same last name!) has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with concentrations in Entrepreneurship and Management Information Systems from Gonzaga University, and she is dedicated to empowering students to achieve their full potential while being their true selves. Jesse enjoys working with peer mentors and students alike and loves to get to know their interests.

Jesse joined ASN as a peer mentor in 2016, and quickly became a key member of the team. She was inspired to become a peer mentor because of her own struggles with ADHD in college, and difficulties with finding good support. She now loves to see students thrive under good circumstances.

In her free time, Jesse spends time with her two dogs, Boots and Basil; hiking and camping. She also likes to learn more about neurodiversity!
