Born and raised in the California Bay Area, Jess enjoyed competing in many sports but dedicated herself to volleyball and snowboarding once I reached high school. Playing for a dynasty program at Granada HS as well as for amazing coaches at Golden Bear Volleyball Club were experiences that propelled me to a full D1 VB scholarship. I absolutely love coaching volleyball and have coached for 9 seasons both in CA and in CO!
