HI, I’M JESS.

TYPE 7 // ENFP. CREATOR. dog lover.

I'm a Chicago girl who was swept away to mid-Missouri (never thought I'd say that) to study Strategic Communication with a focus in Art Direction in the School of Journalism at the University of Missouri. I graduated in May 2018 with my Bachelor's of Journalism as well as a minor in Textile & Apparel Management and a Multicultural Certificate.
I'm a Creative through and through, although I also have a passion for strategic thinking and public relations. I've been doing creative work since I learned to pick up a crayon, and I hope to continue with it for my career. Seriously — when I was ten years old and someone asked me what I wanted to do when I grew up, my answer was to be Miranda Priestly. My dream is still to work for a fashion or beauty company, but I'm open to any and all adventures. 
I'm a social media connoisseur, a wannabe yogi, a wanderlust-er, an adventure-seeker, and an overall lover of all things beautiful. I think there's something incomparable about seeing a project come together from start to finish.  I recently started a passion project, my Instagram account @looksforlesswithjess because I believe fashion should be for everybody, even if it has to be affordable.
Outside my work, you can find me exploring coffee shops, convincing someone to go get sushi with me, reading Reese’s latest book club pick or watching New Girl. Honestly, you'll probably just find me shopping.

I also do freelance web design and branding! If you're interested in working with me, check out the CONTACT page. You can also find my resume there.
