Jessica is constantly trying new beauty launches and treatments—with a beauty closet at home that takes up an entire room. She often jokes that she has “high maintenance skin” but “low-maintenance hair,” which is why she has a special passion for skincare. In addition to chatting with makeup artists, hair stylists, dermatologists, and plastic surgeons, she has a soft spot for brands and advocates that prioritize wellness—not just for the self, but for animals and the planet. She strives to tap into the fun and intellectual sides of the industry with her coverage.


She began her career as a therapist, passionate about incorporating alternative and holistic wellness modalities into clinical treatment plans. Yet writing and facials were always part of her self-care and it soon became apparent that she was meant to be a writer. After a personal essay went viral, she made the switch to being a full-time freelancer in 2016, covering the beauty, fashion, and now wellness verticals. These days, you might notice that a consistent theme in her writing is the mind-body-beauty connection.

Fun Stuff

With a stellium of astrological planets in Virgo, many of Jessica’s pastimes incorporate well-being into the mix. From laughing at David Sedaris’ humor essays to accidental napping to snuggling with her miniature schnauzers, she loves keeping things low-key, plant-based, and gluten-free. Random fact? Her ultimate beauty icons are Angelina Jolie and Amal Clooney, but if she could be best friends with any celebrity, it would be Seth Rogen.
