Jessica was born in Dallas and raised in Indiana, making her a Texan by birth and a Hoosier by most other standards. She graduated from Ohio University with a bachelor's degree in journalism, lived in Spain for a time, and moved to Austin in 2015. She found Midtown shortly after her move and has called it her home ever since. Jessica enjoys hashing out life with other women, hiking, watching soccer, drinking coffee, and talking about personality types. She has an on-and-off relationship with running but a very committed one with chocolate chip cookies made by others.
