Jessica joined the KTEN sports team in August of 2012. She's happy to be in the Texoma area after growing up in Flower Mound, which is only an hour away.
Jessica was born in Chicago, she moved to Texas when she was in elementary school. She has spent a lot of time in Texas and Oklahoma, she is an Alumni of Oklahoma State University and bleeds America's Brightest Orange.
She has a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Broadcasting with an emphasis in Sports Media. She also doubled in Broadcast Production.
Throughout her time at OSU, Jessica was very involved. She was the Campus Connection Representative for ESPNU and an ambassador for the School of Media and Strategic Communications.
Outside of school Jessica spent most of her time doing freelance work for ESPN, TNT and Fox Sports. She's worked almost every major sporting event in the area; from Super Bowl XLV, to the 2011/12 Women's College World Series, to the NBA Finals. She's also a big OKC Thunder fan and has been privileged enough to work/attend almost every Thunder home playoff game since the franchise has been in OKC.
As for internships, she got her start in the summer of 2011 in the sports department at KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City. Then in her final semester of college, she interned in the broadcast department of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
On the weekends and in her spare time, Jessica loves cheering on her OSU Cowboys, OKC Thunder and her beloved Indianapolis Colts. She also tries to go up to Indianapolis for a Colts game at least once a year. If you see her out and about, feel free to ask her Colts obsession and about her trip to the 2009 A-F-C Championship Game!
