Jessica Nelson

Clyde A. Milner II and Anne M. Butler Editorial Fellow, 2015-2017

Jessica graduated with a BA in American Studies from Brigham Young University in 2015, centering her coursework on the Civil War era and the African American experience. However, she decided to broaden her horizons with a semester across the pond at the BYU London Centre, thus beginning her love affair with British history and that great city. Now a graduate student at USU, she plans on continuing her studies in African American history with a focus on the western frontier.

Jessica claims the West as her home, having lived in Portland, Boise, and Intermountain Utah. Along with American history, she is passionate about cycling and dreams about riding her bike in Europe.
