Jessica, while born in Manhattan, KS, considers herself to have grown up on a farm just south of Liberal, KS. She also spent time in the Salina/Assaria area, graduating from Southeast of Saline. Jessica attended Washburn University, double majoring in Finance and Economics, and there met her husband.
After nearly 3 years at Assurance Partners, Jessica took on the role of Credit Manager for Great Plains Manufacturing in the beginning of 2018.
Jessica wants to see a strong downtown, better mental health services, and collaboration between civic and non-profit groups.
"Salina is home. Salina is where my husband and I chose to raise our family. My passion stems from making sure that Salina’s tomorrow is bright not only for my child but for all its residents. Steps we make today can make a big impact for tomorrow, if we take them. SAUW is taking these steps and I want to be a member of an organization that is taking action."
