GOTG Profile: Jessica Kriegel and In The Sac

GOTG Profile: Jessica Kriegel and In The Sac

By Laura Braden

Every now and then you meet someone who makes you happy and proud to live in Sacramento. My latest lady crush is Jessica Kriegel.

A fellow transplant, Jessica moved to Sacramento in 2008. By day, she serves as the Senior Director of Strategic Planning for the Oracle Cloud group. She gets to WORK FROM HOME in downtown Sacramento, and her boss is the head of Oracle Cloud, reporting directly into the CEO. He’s a new hire to Oracle, and his mission is to help Oracle dominate in the Cloud market. Jessica manages strategic planning to that end.

And by night, she’s all things Sacramento. She serves on the board of the Downtown Sacramento Partnership, the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera and the Nehemiah Emerging Leaders Alumni Association. She was a Professor at Drexel University, class V graduate from the Nehemiah Emerging Leaders Program and a current member of Leadership Sacramento (LS15).

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed

Sacramento Fire Department uses new live streaming app to keep public informed


The Sacramento Fire Department has been serving the community since 1872, making it the oldest paid fire department west of the Mississippi, according to the department's spokesman Roberto Padilla. Now, the department is among the first few fire departments in California to utilize a new app to further inform the public in the case of an emergency.

'Periscope' is a new social media app that allows users to broadcast live pictures from their cell phone camera to a potentially global audience. The app runs through Twitter, and users can connect with an audience in real time through their cellphones. It operates similarly to a live chat room with a video stream.

According to Periscope's website, the creators wanted to "build the closest thing to teleportation."
