She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri-School of Journalism and continued her studies to earn a Masters of Public Administration degree. After graduating, she began a career in sales and marketing at two of the most prominent advertising agencies in the world – Foote, Cone & Belding and OMD (Optimum Media Direction) in Chicago. There she had a stellar career working for fortune 500 companies Quaker Oats and Kraft Foods before moving to NYC to work at Disney Worldwide in magazine advertising sales. After spending 10 years on the east coast in NYC and Darien, CT, she moved back to the Chicago area and currently lives in East Wilmette.
Jessica’s own experience relocating back to the Midwest and searching for a home inspired her to pursue a career as a real estate broker. She is aware of the personal service and sense of urgency that clients need when they have to pick up in a pinch and find a home in a new community. Her successful career in marketing and sales made for an easy transition into the real estate brokerage business. She understands the hard work, preparation, and attention to detail that is essential in running a successful home selling process.
Having moved around a lot to different areas of the country, Jessica knows real estate is not just about buying or selling a house, it’s a about buying or selling a lifestyle. Whether it’s living close to the train station, on a beautiful tree-lined street, or within walking distance to the town center, Jessica finds the right place for her clients based on their needs and aspirations. While houses come and go, communities create friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
