Jessica is thrilled to be a part of the iLEAD Exploration team. She is passionate about encouraging, supporting, and working alongside families who are homeschooling their children. Although she has never homeschooled herself (her children are not of school age yet), she sees the MANY great benefits of providing your child with an individualized home education.
Prior to iLEAD, Jessica earned a bachelor’s degree in child and adolescent development from Cal State Fullerton, as well as a multiple subject teaching credential. From there, she worked at a private school in Santa Ana as a transitional kindergarten and first grade teacher for five years. She was also an educational coach at a different charter school where she first realized her passion for working with homeschooling families.
Jessica has been happily married to Michael since 2014. In 2017, she became the mom to James, a lover of books! In 2019, she became a mom to Gianna, the smile queen. In her spare time, Jessica enjoys crafting, family time, and a great board game!
