Hey, I’m Jessica.
My mission in life is to work hard, live honestly, stay true to myself and empower myself and those around me.
My core values include honesty, integrity, authenticity, teamwork, empathy and imagination.

I love reading fantasy romance novels.
Reading has become a huge part of my identity. It’s a place I can escape the world and experience a new adventure. Some would say reading fiction books don’t increase your knowledge, but I would argue it does. These fantasy romance novels have cultivated my imagination, creativity, writing, self-awareness, and different communication tactics.
“It was knowledge that could change everything. It could change the world.”

My life in a blended family
I grew up with many siblings. At present, there are 13 of us kids. The main question everyone asks is if my siblings are all full-blooded. The technical answer is no, but there is a mix of full, half, and step-siblings. To me, the amount of blood I share with my siblings doesn’t matter because they are part of my family.
We have a wide range of ages, with the oldest being 40 with three children of his own and the youngest being 12. Life with so many siblings in two blended families kept life interesting.
My family also has a wide range of ethnicities and religious beliefs, allowing me to learn about various types of people. I have a half-black brother, a step-mom and step-sisters who are Indian, my parents who are Christian and Catholic, and my step-dad and step-siblings who are Jewish. I wouldn’t change this for the world
