Jaleesa Baulkman

Jaleesa Baulkman (she/her) is a black cisgender woman born and raised in the Mount Hope section of the Bronx. She’s spent all her life in the Bronx, aside from the four years she lived in New Paltz while earning her bachelor’s in journalism and Black Studies.


She’s currently a content designer/UX writer, but before pivoting to tech she was a journalist. She became a journalist because she enjoys telling stories and analyzing complicated data and disseminating useful information to the public. She’s written and produced content for various print and digital publications, including Norwood News (a local newspaper in the Bronx), PIX11 News, Daily Mail Online, Google, and WebMD/Medscape. 


She joined the Bronx Community Research Review Board because she wanted to be more involved in her community. As a reporter, she spent a lot of time reporting on health studies and surveys. This time around she wanted to take a more active role in her community by helping to assure that research meets the needs of Bronxites.
