Being a journalist at heart, Jessica decided to come back to the Borderland continue her career in news.

Jessica has a heart for writing and delivering news and is excited to do so in her hometown.
When she's not at the news station, Jessica enjoys spending time with family and traveling. She has a son and two daughters and a cute boxer named Mia.
