At Redlands, she wants to continue her studies as well to help others with their animals because she’s always been passionate about helping other and their animals.

Jessica enjoys playing with her dogs, riding her horses and showing her livestock when she has free time. She also enjoys riding in the local playdays as well as attending the team ropings to support other riders.

A quote that helps Jessica to keep trying even when its hard is “Don’t ever give up on something you really want!”
