Jessica Calderón's picture

Jessica Calderón (she/her/ella) currently lives in Austin, TX. As an undergraduate student, Calderón distinguished herself with outstanding technical and interpersonal skills. Coursework for her degree in psychology included work on cultural competence, mental illness, and human relations. Calderón joined MCN as an intern while attending Texas State University. During her internship, she worked with Roxana Pineda at Ventanilla de Salud at the Mexican Consulate, providing local Mexican citizens and other Latinos with health resources, and attending networking meetings with other local organizations interested in educating and informing about disease prevention. In 2019, Calderón graduated from Texas State University with a double major in Psychology and Spanish Literature. After graduation, Calderón was invited to return as a staff member to support MCN’s International Projects and Emerging Issues department.

Calderón is pursuing her Alternate Entry Master of Science in Nursing (AE-MSN) program prerequisites and planning to apply to this program. Through the Psych/Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Program (PMHNP), she plans to provide primary psychiatric-mental health care at an advanced level to individuals of all ages and their families. Calderón seeks to specialize in working with client populations who have a history of trauma, abuse, attachment interruption, and family problems of origin. She believes that through meaningful work alongside patients, they can overcome or manage trauma and gain significant improvements in health, self-esteem, relationships, and general quality of life.

Calderón was born in Tamaulipas, Mexico, where she resided until 12 when she moved to Austin, Texas, with her family. Besides work and school, Calderón is passionate about any activity that allows her to connect with nature: from kayaking to mountain hiking. She also likes to travel, art, music, books, and spending quality time with friends & family. As demonstrated by her consecutive participation in the Austin Half Marathon, Calderón loves challenges and is always ready to get out of her comfort zone.
