Jessica received a BS in Biology and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology from the University of Florida. She spent the next 14 years researching and teaching microbiology, with an emphasis on viruses. Even though she loved her career, she felt that something was missing. In 2019 she left her career to get her massage and yoga teacher certifications. Combining evidence-based science and wellness is now her passion!
After a life long battle with anxiety, depression and addiction, Jessica was able to reclaim her health with the assistance of yoga, massage and therapy. Wanting to give back, she left her career in science to attend the Atlanta School of Massage (graduation date: June 2020. Georgia Massage Therapy license: MT013196). She also completed the 200 hour yoga teacher training through FORM Yoga/Soul Nourish.
As a life-long lover of all things nerdy, Jessica (pictured to the left with daughter and fellow Ravenclaw) has a lot of connections with the number 42. She was 42 years old when she launched her business and changed her career. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was released on 12/20/19 (her 42nd birthday), and according to the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, "42" is the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything. The icosahedral shape in her logo is a nod to both her love of viruses (being a common shape of viruses) and also her background playing Dungeons and Dragons.
Beginning in 2022, Jessica joined the Board of Directors (Director of Campaigns) of the United States Organization of Licensed Massage Therapists.
