Tomboy. Sarcastic. Witty.
I’d most likely sum myself up into these three words. I was always considered one of the boys growing up. It’s not uncommon to find me shouting at the television during a football game with the guys (or by myself) however, you could just as easily find me gossiping about the latest pop culture news over a glass of Malbec. A working knowledge of sports and celebrities may not qualify me to be the next president, but it’s all the rage in radio.
A graduate of Baylor University, I never intended on doing broadcast. The dream was always softball, until I found myself two failed walk-on tryouts in and sitting in front of a university counselor telling me to get serious about my future. I still considered this conversation to be about a Plan B (that B could have easily stood for “broadcast”), until that backup plan became my greatest passion.
It was sportscaster Holly Rowe who told me the best broadcasters are those who can write and write well. I believe this has propelled me through a fast-paced, highly-competitive career field. Couple that with a passion for people and here I am, nearly a decade later still doing what I love.
Currently I host a show called “Jess on the Job.” I specialize in country music and at-work listening on multiple stations across the nation. I feel so incredibly fortunate to be in this industry and have also had the chance to provide voice overs for dozens of clients on radio and television across the country, through my work with Global Media. I even had the chance to voice a character for an original-concept Stern pinball machine.
My job has also given me a chance to meet and interview some really influential people like Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks, Ed Sheeran, Ludacris, Conan O’Brien, Eli Manning, Elizabeth Hurley, and more.
Holding dear to my small town, California girl roots, I aim to spread that west coast sunshine wherever I go.
