Born in Chicago, Jessica graduated from Illinois State University in 2013 with a B.S. in Psychology and a focus on Women and Gender Studies. Looking for a fresh perspective, she moved to Colorado where she gained a passion for the outdoors. While working for a treatment program in Boulder, she found herself seeking a way to combine her draw towards nature and her passion for helping others. She moved to Hawaii to pursue working in wilderness therapy with adolescents.
Jessica has always been drawn toward helping others as she brings compassion and a holistic approach to working with a variety of populations. Most recently, she completed her 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training and is passionate about the mind body connection. Outside of work, Jessica enjoys playing music, hiking, traveling, and practicing yoga.
