Jessika is a recovering wanderlust and world traveler who has found contentment and purpose in being a wife and mom of three. Dressed in comfy tees and in colorful Converse, the earthy-crunchy Vermonter is a lover of all things organic, especially large amounts of chocolate.
A former educator and cheerleader, Jessika has always found joy in helping and encouraging others. In fact, her son’s NICU experience in 2019 led to her founding of Praying Through ministries, a nonprofit that serves families around the world as they navigate childhood illness, childhood hospitalizations, and or child loss. She currently serves as president and leads a team of 40+ volunteers.
Jessika's writing has been featured in Proverbs 31 Ministries’ Hope When Your Heart is Heavy devotional (2021), Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse Jr. magazine (2022), and Tyndale’s So God Made a Mother (2023). She is also the coauthor of The Good Book Company’s, In His Hands: Prayers for Your Child or Baby in a Medical Crisis (2024).
