Jessica Johnston

Center Supervisor & Workforce Development Trainer

Jessica Johnston is the Center Supervisor and Workforce Development Trainer at the Business Interface office in Wilmington, DE. She brings over 20 years of experience in various fields, including law firms, financial institutions, and social services. Her career began with the Administrative Office of the Courts in Delaware, where she reviewed foster care cases. She then spent nearly five years as a foster care and adoption case manager, advocating for foster youth in court and matching them with foster families or adoptive homes. 


Ms. Johnston later worked at the Goodwill of Delaware and Delaware County PA's Workforce Development Program, where she managed a team of job coaches to support individuals with intellectual disabilities in finding and maintaining employment. Before joining Business Interface, she was an educational program manager supporting foster youth in their educational journeys.


Ms. Johnston holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Drexel University and is a member of the national collegiate honor society. She has served on several committees, including the Child Protection Accountability Commission, Ready By 21, and the Youth Advisory Council. Her experience with foster care youth has been enriched by extensive training in trauma-informed practices. 


She is a devoted mom of two boys and an Australian Shepherd, who inspire her to work hard every day. In her earlier years, she was a competitive figure skater, having competed in the 1997 Eastern Nationals in Lake Placid, New York. She also has a passion for music, having played the violin as a child and participated in choral groups. 


At Business Interface, Ms. Johnston finds joy in helping her students grow and reach their goals. Her passion for helping others is driven by her belief that everyone deserves a chance to succeed. She lives by the quote: "A failure is not always a mistake. It may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying."
