Jessica joined KSN as the 6 & 10 pm Co-Anchor in November 2013 and is thrilled to continue to call Missouri her home.
She moved in Joplin, MO in July2012 to begin her broadcast career at KSN's sister station KODE, also in Joplin. There, she spent her time as the weekend meteorologist and a weekday reporter covering everything from severe weather threats to breaking news stories.
Jessica has two Bachelor's degrees – a B.A. in Communication from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, and a B.S. in Meteorology from Florida State University in Tallahassee. She is a proud Trojan and Seminole alum, as well as a proud born-and-raised Floridian.
In her spare time, Jessica enjoys keeping up with her weather forecasting skills and teaching dance to budding ballerinas.
