According to Jessica
“I love my job because I get to go to work every day and help people improve their quality of life. Having had physical therapy myself in the past, I understand it can be stressful and I like to use humor to help make a stressful experience more fun.”
On a personal note
“I’ve been happily married to my husband, Victor, for more than 18 years and we have 6 fur babies: 5 cats and 1 dog! I love to read fantasy and do all things outdoors that end in an “-ing” (such as camping, hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, etc).”
