My name is Jessie Wardarski and I'm a current staff Photojournalist with the Tulsa World. 

I'm a 2015 graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University where I earned a B.A. in Journalism and Mass communications along with certificate in international studies. I was previously a photo intern at the Arizona Republic, a multimedia intern at the Cedar Rapids Gazette and a News21 Fellow.

I've been awarded Arizona College Photographer of the Year. I'm a 6th place Hearst finalist in feature writing. And an SPJ and Inland Press photography award winner. 

My life goals include traveling to all 50 states. Working in countries across the globe. Running at least 10 marathons. And finally, to start a video/documentary company. 

Thanks for visiting!
