After receiving her teaching certificate, with degrees in Art History and Italian Studies, she earned her MA in Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University, with an emphasis in architecture. She then used her degrees to originate an Advanced Placement Art History Program in Salt Lake City, Utah. The highlight of her program was taking high school students on tours to San Francisco and to New York City, sponsored by the Renaissance Society of America. Whether onsite or online, the classroom is her favorite place to be, and discussing art and history with enthusiasts of all ages has become her true passion. Jessica now lives in Paris with her husband and two young boys.
