Jessica was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She is a graduate of Baton Rouge Magnet High School and is currently enrolled at Louisiana State University where she is pursuing a degree in Digital Art with a minor in Arts, Visualization, Advanced Technologies, and Research (AVATAR). She hopes to become an animator for a production company. Her dream jobs include working for Disney, Pixar, and Dreamworks to name a few.
Between working in the Communications Department at Pennington Biomedical Research Center and the nursery at church, Jessica likes to stay busy. From waking up early to go on her morning run to the constant art projects she’s getting herself into, she has little downtime. She’s active in the Baton Rouge car community as well—working as a freelance graphic designer for businesses and events.
This book project caught Jessica’s attention because of the idea of giving back to the community, as she has always been interested in community service projects. She likes a good challenge, too, because producing a book in two months is no easy task.
