About Jesse Oldham

Like many animal lovers, Jesse managed her first feral cat colony in her Brooklyn neighborhood independent of any formal training. Her passion for her hobby led her to become an ASPCA certified TNR expert, and to found the organization Slope Street Cats, where she and other cat loving neighbors could organize their efforts. Jesse is currently the Senior Administrative Director of the ASPCA's Community Outreach programs, and she is clearly pleased to have turned her passion into her profession.
