Peabody is pleased to feature Peabody alumni siblings Jessie (2008) and Josh (2012) Press-Williams in our Alumni Spotlight for May!

Jessie graduated from Peabody in 2008, attended Charlottesville High School, and graduated from MIT with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. She moved to Lusaka, Zambia in 2016 as an Associate at IDinsight, an NGO that helps leaders in international development make better, evidence-based decisions. “I’ve worked on projects in Zambia and Uganda in public health, water and sanitation, and agriculture,” Jessie says. “Later this year, I’ll be moving to Nairobi, Kenya, as a Design Engineering Fellow for BURN, an NGO that designs and manufactures clean cookstoves.”

Jessie’s younger brother Josh graduated Peabody in 2012 and also attended Charlottesville High School.  He is currently a student at the University of Chicago, working on a degree in Environmental and Urban Studies.  Click here for the rest of the article: 2018 Alumni Spotlight.
