Jessica De Nova
Jessica De Nova's passion for story-telling and digging for unique stories stems from her own American experience. She grew up in Santa Ana, California, as an undocumented immigrant after leaving Mexico at three years of age.

Throughout her life, she shared her story and often found support from her teachers, friends and community. She learned at an early age the power of sharing one's reality with the world and the importance of living in the United States, sin olvidar sus raices. Her parents taught her -- success comes with hard work and dedication.

She graduated from California State University Long Beach with a Bachelor of Science in biology. Her career in journalism began in 2012 in Southern Oregon where her husband worked as a firefighter. While with the CBS affiliate, KTVL, Jessica covered President Barack Obama's visit to Roseburg following the Umpqua Community College shooting. In 2016, Jessica hosted Morning Edition with Jefferson Public Radio, became a United States citizen, voted for the first time and ran her first marathon. She then made her way from the Cascades to the San Francisco Peaks in Flagstaff, Arizona, where she was the bureau reporter for the NBC affiliate, KPNX, later transferring to the station in Phoenix.

In 2017, Jessica was in Las Vegas for coverage of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival shooting and to Florida to report on Hurricane Irma. She is excited to be back home to raise her daughter around family and is always looking for recommendations on a good place for a run or walk where a stroller and dogs are welcome.
