Growing up on a small farm in Wisconsin, hard work was engrained in Jessica at a very young age, and her parents also taught her the importance of community service by being long-time Scout leaders, a religious educator, and volunteer EMT/firefighter. She has an educational background in art/design as well as years of experience in the culinary/restaurant industry. These careers have provided her with a unique perspective and empathy that she utilizes when analyzing situations and finding creative solutions to problems, which would be an asset to the Board.
Jessica is all about open communication and community outreach . . . helping her neighbors, finding common ground among conflicting beliefs, and never giving up! She is a survivor of domestic and gun violence, a mom (of 2-legged and 4-legged kids), a wife, and a defender of the underdog.
