Jessica Salmond's Profile


I graduated May 2014.

I have been a life-long resident of Missouri, hailing from the northwest corner. My parents and three brothers all graduated from MU, so it was lucky that I discovered a passion for journalism.

I could not decide if I loved reporting or photojournalism the most, so I designed an interest area within my degree to accommodate both. I also decided I wanted to have an adventure and develop as a journalist, so I was a summer intern reporter in Enid, Oklahoma, and completed a semester abroad in Milan, Italy.

I'm headed to Sarasota, Florida, to work for the Sarasota Observer as a reporter.
