Jessica was born in the “Bold New City of the South" and loves her some Jacksonville. Not only is J-Ville the place where she was raised with her twin brother, but is it also where she met and married her super-handy hubby, Melvin. Together they have a lovely daughter named Lily and a very competitive son, Henry. In a previous life, Jessica was an Event Coordinator for many years at a local country club. But at 40, she took a leap of faith- trading in her fancy weddings and parties for block crayons, lavender oils and melodicas to become the Director of Special Events at her children's Waldorf school. Jessica has appeared on local tv discussing topics ranging from Black Friday to couponing, - dirty hair, consignment sales and summer camps. Jessica enjoys Florida Gator Football, all things Disney, inappropriate jokes, singing show tunes, making fudge, big ugly shelter dogs, reading Emily Post and writing in cursive.
