Jerica is Cobb County's District Two Commissioner, serving as a fierce advocate in the community, and representing the intersection of technology, business, and public policy. Her nontraditional track to public office includes making an impact in the technology industry as a thought leader and Technology Strategic Program Manager for Equifax, authoring several books, and a short stint in the entrepreneurial field with two companies. She attended Georgia Tech and graduated with a degree in Biomedical Engineering.
Her aspiration is to create a world with empowered people where opportunity justice is administered across all areas of life- education, welfare, economic well-being, health, and safety. She believes there are many ways to bring about such important and impactful changes, and lives to encourage others to contribute in the best way they can.
Originally from New Orleans, she comes from a large family and arrived in Atlanta on the heels of Hurricane Katrina.
