Being a Florida native, she loves all things nature and being outdoors. She once lived on a canoe for 5 days in the Everglades as part of a high school field trip.
Jessica has a soft spot for cats and adopted her cat Hazel when she moved to Monroe in 2018. Follow any of her social media accounts and you'll see plenty of cat pictures.
During college, she worked at the campus TV station CitrusTV and the top 40s radio station WJPZ. She was part of a comedy club and a tour guide. She’s an alum of Alpha Gamma Delta Fraternity. Theatre’s always been a big part of her life, so in college, she costume-designed for the group First Year Players.
