Jess loves kids! Ever since childhood, she imagined working with them – and she did! For 10 years, Jess served in children’s ministry leadership at Crosspoint Church in Temecula, California. Before that, she studied psychology (with an emphasis in development) at Seattle Pacific University and then received her Masters of Science in counseling (specializing in child mental health) from Loma Linda University.
Jess also loves teaching, developing and coaching leaders all over the nation. Seeing people impassioned to work with children brings her great joy (along with coffee and dark chocolate). Whether a parent, volunteer, leader or community member, she’d love to get to know you, hear your story and see your potential for impacting the Kingdom, through a child!
When she’s not at work, Jess loves the beach, getting lost on new adventures and spending time with her favorite people: Rapha, husband of 17 years, and their two littles Ellie and Gabi.
