Director of Legislative Affairs
Jessica was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio and graduated from Thomas Edison State University with a BA in Communications. She got her passion for pro-life politics from her parents.

Jessica then began working at the Ohio State Senate for Senator LaRose as a Legislative Aide for a year and a half. She oversaw all scheduling, constituent correspondence, clerked committee and was responsible for all office communication and organization.
