Jessica is a comedienne, actress, screenwriter and director, and has been doing them all in one form or another since she was a little girl. Comedy has actually been in her blood, since she was born a premature baby on Friday the 13th so her mom's doctor could go on a golfing trip (don't worry, it was hysterical). Jessica hopes her stand up and all her creative endeavors will add some laughter to people's lives, as well as bring people together, except through LinkedIn...which Jessica thinks needs to be destroyed. Unless you're offering her a job through LinkedIn, in which case she thinks it's genius, as are you for offering her a job.
