IPO and beyond. While at Pandora, Jessica also became the founder and executive sponsor

of the company’s popular Women In Business group, which serves to connect, mentor, and

inspire Pandora’s current and future female leaders. In 2011 and 2012, Jessica was named

one of the Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business by the San Francisco Business Times.

She was added to their Forever Influential list in 2013. She was also honored by Billboard
