Most people call me Jess and a select few call me “mama Jess”. But the most important humans in my life call me mom. I’m a mother of two to Jackson (10) and Lucy (9); three if you count my black lab Chloe (10). I’m native to the Bay Area and count my lucky stars that I'm fortunate enough to live here. I have a job outside of the home that I love, several different groups of friends whom I adore, and way too many hobbies to keep my already busy life in a state of chaos. I graduated from San Diego State with two degrees I don’t actually put into practice, but I at least benefited from the journey of that college experience. Immediately after graduating college and starting my Master’s program I found out I was pregnant. Then, real life happened.
