Jessica grew up in Victoria, and always had a flare for being in the spotlight. She has acted, sung, and well just tried to be the center of attention pretty much her whole life. Jessica points out that she been poor for the majority of her life, surviving off of food banks, and the generosity of others (I’d like to remind readers to donate to their local food banks as the holiday season approaches).

Jessica started living on her own at the age of 14 due to a circumstance of which she had no control over, and has been tossed, and battered by life. However, she did not let that bring her down as she always knew from a young age that she was meant to help people, and be something in life. Strength and beauty, what a combination.

Jessica got into modeling when a friend (Katie Muller) needed to build her portfolio, and from then on it’s been something she adores doing. “It’s a creative outlet which I didn’t have, ever before. It led me into acting, and now event planning. I’m in the process of building an event planning business here in Victoria, and eventually plan to move to Vancouver,” said Jessica. She will be specializing in Charity events and weddings.” I may only be 23, but by the time I leave this world, I will have made a difference to someone!”
