An Alabama native and raised in Gadsden, Jessica studied ELA education at The University of Alabama, and moved to Birmingham after graduating in 2012. She then started working as a middle school teacher, where teaching became her passion. She also attended UAB for her Masters of ESL, so “Roll tide!” and “Go Blazers!” While teaching abroad, Jessica met her husband in Colombia. When she returned to the states, she continued her love of teaching in Hoover. When she isn’t working, you can find Jessica at church, spending time with her family and friends, or crafting. She resides in Pelham with her husband, Johan, and 1 year old son, Judah. Being a mother is Jessica's greatest joy and most humbling gift.
