About Her

Office Manager

Jessica may be considered a New Jersey "transplant", but her home has been North Carolina for over 30 years now and there's no place she'd rather live! With an education and career experience in healthcare, Jessica made the switch to remote working to be able to stay at home while raising two amazing daughters over 20 years ago. She has a passion for people and excellent customer service skills. Jessica is glad she's part of our DHI team! In her spare time Jessica enjoys mentoring others in enjoying a minimalist, organized home and spoiling her grandchildren.
