Jessica Zuckerman DuVal grew up in New Jersey and eventually made her way to the west coast working on water supply issues in California’s Central Valley through Americorp’s VISTA program. She has had the privilege to be an educator in some incredibly beautiful places including the Olympic Mountains, foothills of the Sierras and under the shade of the redwood trees in the Santa Cruz mountains. Her husband, Ryan Duval, introduced her to Rigpa and Sogyal Rinpoche. Although she wasn’t looking for a spiritual path, the teachings were exactly what she needed. She is now the Director of Rigpa Fellowship and is especially passionate about sharing the wisdom of the teachings with anyone who may find them helpful. Jessica enjoys being in nature, reading, listening to music and good food with good company.
