Jessica Dickinson has worked in municipal Parks & Recreation for over 20 years as a community organizer, currently serving as the Recreation Director for the Town of East Fishkill, NY. She loves sharing innovative programming and resources in order to improve overall quality of life though meaningful and intentional connection.
She serves as President of the Hudson Valley Leisure Services Association (HVLSA) and as President-Elect of the New York State Recreation and Parks Society (NYSRPS). She appreciates any time she is able to collaborate with her regional and state colleagues through professional development opportunities.
Jessica has two kids, two dogs, two cats, and three marathons to run this year: Millbrook?, Chicago, and New York City. She is excited to continue advocating for the best Parks and Recreation services wherever her feet hit the ground (and they're usually off running).
