Hello There! My Name is Jessica. I am a registered dental assistant and patient care coordinator. Outside of my passion for my career, I have a passion for my kids, animals and all things nature. Our little zoo at home consists of two dogs, a horse, and a turtle. My kiddos are forever catching snakes or lizards they name and love for a day, then return back to the wild.
