Jessica Adams is the Washoe County Homeland Security Assistant. She works at the Regional Emergency Operations Center (REOC) at 5195 Spectrum Blvd, Reno, NV. 

Born and raised in Carson City, Jessica moved to Reno in 2008 to attend the University of Nevada. She received a Bachelor of Science in Community Health Sciences in 2013. She spent a handful of years in private healthcare and health administration before deciding to go back to school. She received a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Nevada in 2020. Jessica has always had a passion for helping people—and coupled with her education in health and safety of the public—it seemed only fitting that she shifted to the field of Emergency Management. Jessica joined our program as Homeland Security Program Assistant in January 2020.

When she’s not working, Jessica enjoys exercising, hiking, paddle boarding, cooking and exploring our region’s amazing food and drink scene.
