She enjoys the ability to work for an agency that does quality work for people who need and appreciate the support. Her wish for those served to be respected as individuals, to receive supports from people that empower and provide for them to live good lives, and to have meaningful opportunities to be included in the communities in which they live.
Jessica, and her husband Gabe are busy with their children’s (Carson and Kenlee) active schedule of football, basketball, baseball, and gymnastics.
