meet jess

I am a twenty-six year old girl who went to a small college in a big city. I majored in theology and minored in psychology, so I really enjoy understanding faith and people.

This gal loves to read (A LOT), play video games, and be out in nature (kayaking is my favorite, even though my arms are WEAK). I am into anything Lord of the Rings, Anne of Green Gables, and Jane Austen. I also love love love music–especially some good soul pop.

I used to fret over what I was supposed to do with my life—and at this point I have learned to hold my dreams loosely and trust God to show me the rest. Today, I am called to love God and love people and I hope that my life is reflection of that.

I currently work full time at a church helping to build community and it’s my favorite thing getting to be a part of so many people’s stories–even if just for a season.

I am hesitant to say this, but I am an aspiring author and hope one day to write something that someone needs to hear. I pray that if I have nothing encouraging or life-changing to say, that my dream to write a book wouldn’t come about. I have no desire to put more clutter out into the world of books–I want the words I say to be intentional and filled with purpose.

Thanks for reading and being here. It truly means a lot.


I have already met so many kind new friends through my writing over the years and I love making more! Share your thoughts, questions and whatever else you need to get off your chest. Also feel free to message me on instagram. I’m more likely to respond there.
