While planning her own wedding, Jessica realized how difficult an engagement can be, from etiquette to family drama to budget issues. While researching, she started a personal blog documenting her journey, including humorous anecdotes, personal struggles, and advice for fellow brides. Because of the positive feedback and strong following of the blog, Jessica decided to write The Realist Bride, a funny, informational and candid guide on how to plan a wedding without losing your mind.

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.
