Jesse Taggert joins us as Product Marketing Manager for Rally and Program Manager for RallyPad. She has over 15 years experience in communication and design. Jesse has helped organizations — startups, professional associations, art museums, universities, and even the U.S. Navy — strengthen their market position, tell their story, and inspire their audience.
Born and bred in New England, Jesse worked in Boston for over 10 years and earned a master’s degree in graphic design from Rhode Island School of Design. A few years later—craving warmer winters and the “can do anything” culture of the Bay Area—she moved to San Francisco. She’s taught design and design history, run a coworking space, and currently volunteers as “Dean” of the Awesome Foundation, San Francisco.
Causes Jesse cares about include: funding art projects, ending child sex trafficking and increasing women’s educational and economic opportunities worldwide.
Teresa joins Rally as our indispensible Operations Manager. She worked with us for several months on a contract basis, and we’re now thrilled to have her aboard full time to support the Rally team and the RallyPadders as we all work towards building a stronger community.
She is finishing up her MA thesis and is in her third year of a “service learning teaching pipeline,” Pin@y Educational Partnerships, where they voluntarily teach Critical Filipina/o American Studies at SFUSD and City College of San Francisco to address issues of recruitment, retention, and research, amongst others. In her chill time, she likes to eat good food, be with friends, and go to sunny places.
