Go ahead, get your snoop on.
So pleased to meet ya
I’m Jessica—Jess, actually—a creative professional living in the midwest, looking for every chance to do my best work every day. My education was in traditional design and illustration, but I’ve worked over the years in a variety of creative leadership roles that have expanded my skillset with each new challenge that came along. While I have experience doing just a little bit of everything—including writing, photography, illustration, styling, and direction—I’ve found a particular strength and expertise in creative leadership, digital strategy, and user experience/user interface design beyond the experience of most peers.
My strongest skillset is arguably my professional adaptablity— or hunger to learn on the job. I've spent my entire career working on expanding my skillset to stretch into new areas of interest or professional adjacencies. Photography, art direction, and photo styling are all knacks that I picked up during my time leading the editorial art department at 417 Magazine. Time spent in the agency world gave me practical insights into strategy, brand development, and creative on a large scale. And my last few years in the digital-first realm at Mostly Serious has tossed me head first into advanced web design and UX, digital strategy, and digital research methods that make my work effective.
So, if you've got a need—I may not have it yet, but you can bet that I can learn to be great at it.
I live in Springfield, Missouri—home of Bass Pro, Brad Pitt, and Cashew Chicken. At home, I’ve got a swell husband, adorable boy named Arlo, and three dogs (but only one of them is good). My yoga practice is mostly good and getting better. I love music of the alternative and indie variety, but can occasionally be caught rapping Hamilton in my car on the way to work.
