Jessica Rossi ‘16

Mental Health Counselor · Sports Psychology Advocate · Client Support System

“Menlo was probably the greatest time of my life; I had so much fun. I was just involved in a lot of different things and it really got me out of my shell and kind of helped me develop into the bright and bubbly person I am today. So I had a great experience, I was doing a lot and met a lot of fun people.”

Jessica Rossi, a Psychology major from Hawaii, found a home away from home at Menlo College. Excelling in both basketball and her studies, Rossi made lasting memories with friends on and off the courts. As a freshman, she took part in Menlo’s victorious Women’s Basketball Cal PAC Championship of 2013. While researching for her senior thesis, she discovered a passion for the biology and psychology behind Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and how it affects athletes transitioning out of professional sports. Combining her love of sports with her field of study fueled her ambition to earn a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and find a career that allows her to help fellow former athletes. Recently, she has started a new position as an Adult Outpatient Clinician at Jefferson Center for Mental Health. Along the way, she advocated to have benefited greatly from her management courses at Menlo, which allow her to succeed not only as a psychologist but also as a business leader in her career.
