Born in Atlanta, GA, Jasmine Clark has called Georgia home for over 30 years. With family ties deeply rooted throughout Georgia, including raising children here, Jasmine cares deeply about the future of the State.
At a young age, Jasmine realized her passion for the sciences. This led her to pursue an education and career in Microbiology, including receipt of her Doctoral degree from Atlanta's own Emory University. She currently serves as faculty at multiple universities in the Atlanta area, with a focus on teaching and curriculum development. As the field of science requires strategic planning, problem solving, and attention to detail, Jasmine believes that her scientific background could add a unique and refreshing perspective to legislating in GA.
Outside of the classroom, Jasmine has also been involved in community organizing and activism. She served as the Director of the March for Science held in Atlanta in April 2017. She continues to work with other groups, including the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, on advocating for social justice issues and causes. She believes that an inclusive Georgia is a thriving Georgia, and that there is no place for divisive rhetoric and discriminatory practices in Georgia's future.
