Personal History/Background

Jessica grew up in north central Kansas in Belleville and spent her school breaks in western Kansas around Rexford and Sharon Springs. Because of this, she considers all of Kansas to be home. Her passions revolve around soil, water, agriculture and the environment, and this is what guided her through her education. After graduation, she spent two years as a crop consultant and agricultural engineer in southern Colorado. And while the mountains were beautiful, the people of the Midwest and Kansas called her home.
