Raised in Lebanon, Ohio, Jess grew up spending time outside, watching Ohio State football and eating Graeter’s Ice Cream. She will always say yes to a camping trip or a game of pickleball!
Jess is passionate about advocating for those who feel overlooked or forgotten. Her 2016 internship in Monterrey, Mexico sparked a desire to learn more about serving vulnerable children through a trauma informed lens. Jess returned on short term trips to Monterrey several times since 2016, falling in love with the city and the mission of Back2Back more and more each time.
She is thrilled to join the Back2Back team to share the hope and healing message of the Gospel to orphans and vulnerable children in Monterrey.
