Jessica worked for twelve years as a buyer and merchandise manager for two major department stores in Chicago and Boston and later transitioned to a career in the financial industry working for a large Boston Bank as a Branch Manager and a Mortgage Loan Officer.
While raising her two daughters she was able to develop her creative passions for fashion design and home decorating. When Jessica’s daughters entered college, she fulfilled another life long love, that of sports. She began coaching field hockey and lacrosse for young girls in two public school districts and continues to coach lacrosse and umpire field hockey today. Jessica is finding a true sense of reward from her latest career as her players enter college and play their sport in the NCAA. Jessica and her husband are retiring to Naples, FL. While there, they look forward to visits from their daughters who reside in Boston and London. Jessica is an avid female golfer with a handicap of 12.0 at 61 years old! She is proud that she had passed this down to her two daughters who are better than her at golf.
