Jessica loves to read almost as much as she loves the mountains. She is a lifelong student and has had a camera in her hands as long as she can remember. Halloween is her favorite holiday because for one day every year, she can be anything she wants to be. Jessica loves yoga and hiking and hot coffee and is always up for an adventure. She believes that Steve Jobs said it best with, “the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do,” and she absolutely loves what she does.
Jessica graduated from the University of Denver with a bachelor of arts in leadership and a master’s degree in stategic human resource management. She is proud of the team and feels that each one contributes above and beyond what she could have ever imagined. Jessica feels blessed to be able to work with such insanely talented professionals and amazing clients.
