Jessica grew up in Orange County and moved to the Bay Area for college. Inspired by her high school chemistry teacher, she originally wanted to study chemistry before falling in love with astronomy in general and black holes specifically. She came to SFSU for a Master's degree in Physics in 2004 and had the life-changing experience of teaching astronomy in a planetarium for the first time. Jessica stayed on at SFSU as a lecturer in physics and astronomy, and now splits her time between teaching and running the Supplemental Instruction program in the College of Science and Engineering.
