Jessica is a cat mama to two very spoiled Devon Rex babies called Molly & Peach. In fact, Jessica has been surrounded by cats since she was a little girl. Her grandmother was a 'crazy cat lady' who raised Siamese, Sphinx, Devon Rex, Cornish Rex and American Short-hairs. If her husband would allow it, Jess would have several more cats but unfortunately city life has limited her to only two.
An avid marathon runner, Jess completed her 15th marathon last fall and can usually be found clocking miles up the Hudson River. She is a supporter and fundraiser for Tusk Trust, a charity that initiates and funds wildlife conservancy, community development and education projects in Africa. Over the last three years, she has helped to raise over 50K for Tusk and ran the Safaricom Marathon as their US Ambassador in 2018. Jess is also a co-founder of 41Wildcard, an online boutique of curated home & jewelry collections inspired by travel. When not searching the globe for local artisans to partner with, she lives in Tribeca with her husband and two kitty babies.
