I'm an intellectually curious, creatively driven content marketer, fine jewelry designer, and fashion media scholar based outside of Chicago, IL.
Born in England and raised stateside, I earned my Bachelor’s degree at DePaul University in Chicago where I studied communication and media, theatrical costume design, and history. In 2018, I earned my Master of Arts in Costume Studies at New York University and have since relocated back to my favorite city.
These days, I'm an editorial manager at a digital marketing agency. I'm also designing fine jewelry and developing independent research. Here, I'm sharing stories about my past projects and current endeavors.
WHAT I'M WORKING ON
With eight years' experience in marketing, writing, and content creation, I'm currently employed as an Editorial Manager where I oversee a team of writers at Brafton, a content marketing agency.
Super impressed with the first articles from Jessica! They're very well-researched, informational, and educational. There's a good touch of entertainment and humor, too.
