Weddings Expertise

While researching, she started a personal blog documenting her journey, including humorous anecdotes, personal struggles, and advice for fellow brides.

She has done extensive research on vegetarianism and is interested in helping people achieve fitness and health goals through a meat-free lifestyle, as well as helping people identify and use cruelty-free products.

Pet Rescue Background

Jessica has extensive experience working with animals over a number of years. In college, she was on the Board of a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue, working with dogs and cats pulled from shelters with high kill rates. She ran adoption events and fundraisers and coordinated the volunteer program while writing a monthly newsletter to past and potential adopters.

Over the course of two years, Jessica personally fostered and adopted out over twenty shelter pets. After working with the rescue, Jessica worked as a veterinary technician at one of the shelters, working as a direct liaison between the shelter and a variety of rescue groups.
