After growing up on an inspiringly beautiful farm in Southwest Arizona, Jessica moved to New York City to work as a nanny. Because of her passion for cooking, she soon found that she was hired to teach other nannies how to prepare delicious and healthy dishes for the children of New York City.
Jessica then decided to follow her passion for cooking, beginning formal studies at the acclaimed Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School. After interning at the Four Seasons, Manhattan, she went on to study at the DCT Culinary Academy in Switzerland where she became the First American Female to win the prestigious Gold Medal in KochKunst at the ZAGG.
Jessica has also worked in London at the Ritz but currently lives in Chicago, where she has been working as a private chef for Chicago families, producing a “recipe” and educational series that aims to further culinary excellence.
