Jessica Holland- Director

Jessica Hidalgo Holland joins the Women's Resource Center in 2017 as the new director. She brings to UNM over fifteen years of experience working in the non-profit sector. A native of the northeast, and a graduate of New York University, Jessica quickly found a calling in social justice philanthropy working for Tides Foundation and the Third Wave Fund*. She then took her skills to California raising resources for Guide Dogs of the Desert and Hope Through Housing Foundation.

With a passion for creating positive social change, Jessica spent the last five years conducting outreach and fundraising for Albuquerque SANE Collaborative. Her involvement with UNM’s SMART team gave her a deeper understanding of the unique challenges facing the UNM community. She resolutely supports UNM’s efforts in becoming more trauma informed and victim centered in how they respond to sexual assault, and is eager to help enact policy that reflects this commitment.
