Jess K Smith ’05

"It’s pretty easy to feel discouraged about the world, but all you have to do is visit a class and meet some Puget Sound students to feel inspired and find a renewed sense of hope. They remind you that we have a bright future."

Jess is a proud Puget Sound alumna and professor. After Ivy League graduate school and directing plays all over the country, Jess chose to return to her alma mater because, she says, “Puget Sound changed my life.”
