After graduating from Elon University, Jessica went on to continue her education and become a Registered Respiratory Therapist. Jessica worked in both large multi-specialty and small community hospitals for 7 years before returning to school to earn her Masters Degree in Physician Assistant Studies.
Jessica grew up in Durham before relocating to New Bern. While working at the hospital in New Bern she met her husband, and the two decided to settle down in the area with their two dogs.
When not working, Jessica and her husband love to travel extensively, enjoy the beach, and spending time around the house with their dogs.
