Hi, my name is Jessica. I am a native to Arizona. I have an Associate’s Degree in Administration of Justice, and I am attending Northern Arizona University. I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies there. I currently volunteer with Mesa PD at the Family Advocacy Center which I love, it’s also helping me figure out my long term career goals. Other than school and work, I do like my free time. I love the outdoors and have recently gotten myself into biking. I like to keep busy on the weekends and remind myself I can still have fun even with a busy schedule!
