Jesica had the good fortune of working on her grandparent’s farm, while at the same time, learning the ropes in the family’s real estate and appraisal business. She was the first in her family to accept a corporate role after college…. but it didn’t take long before she started her own company, making her a 4th generation entrepreneur. Her greatest gift is her fourteen year-old son Tre’, who brings her joy, keeps life FUN and all things in perspective!
