Her dad bred and showed Treeing Walker Coonhounds while she was growing up. She always helped out with puppies, and even showed some when she was younger.

When Jessica was in high school, she had the opportunity to take a co-op class that allowed her to leave school and volunteer at a place of her choice – which happened to be All Animals Veterinary Hospital! It was the experience she gained here that made her choose the veterinary technician field.
