Jessica loves to be active and spends most of her time outdoors. Whether it’s on the golf course, on the boat fishing, or at the beach – she loves to be outside when the sun is shining. Jessica also loves kids, which is why she spends what is left of her time tutoring elementary, middle, and high school students in various levels of math. Jessica’s most recent endeavor is turning professional by joining the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals. Currently she is a Class B member with ambitions to reach class A status. She aspires to teach all ages, but would like to be involved in helping bring more junior programs to the area and entice more kids to get involved in the game of golf.
