She is involved in all teams at Networks (Technologies for Independence and Control, Community and Organizational Development, Employment Supports, and Wholistic Practices) and is a reiki and reflexology practitioner. Jess continues to be enamored by the power of touch and the incredible effects wellness has in all scopes of life for everyone. More recently, she has been studying the captivating power of supporting people to tell their stories through Biographical Timelines and how this, and other Person Centered Planning tools, can establish new avenues of understanding surrounding a person for them and their communities of support.

In her spare time, Jess enjoys creating, getting lost in nature, and having “Ah-HA!” moments throughout her day. She lives on the side of a mountain in central Pennsylvania with her partner, Pete and a menagerie of furry critters to include 3 German Shepherds with very big personalities who generally respond to their names of Smokey, Chloe, Maggie Mae and three particularly pesky cats who never respond to their names of Mamma, Orangy-White, and Scooter.
