Jessica has lived and worked solely in Knoxville’s historic districts since graduating from the University of Tennessee in 2003. During and immediately after her time at UT she worked for an architect and developer in Downtown Knoxville during the earliest years of what would become a large-scale revival of downtown and eventually the city neighborhoods. The tight-knit community feel of the downtown residential scene sparked a passion that quickly led her to the surrounding historic neighborhoods. It was there that she saw the opportunity to continue the downtown movement and a need for professional services to help the historic neighborhoods reach their full potential. For many years she helped buyers and seller clients in these neighborhoods herself, and she now assists her agents in doing so.
Over the years Jessica has lived in various first neighborhoods of Knoxville including Fourth and Gill and Fairmont-Emoriland. Since 2007, Jessica and her family have resided in Island Home Park in their 1915 Craftsman. She is currently the board president of Keep Knoxville Beautiful, has served on the boards of Knox Heritage, the Island Home Park Neighborhood Association, the 100 Block Neighborhood Association, volunteered for Leaders for Readers, United Way, Legacy Parks, the South Knoxville Foundation, and was voted “Top Knox Realtor” in the Knoxville Mercury for two consecutive years. Jessica loves art, interior design, reading, gardening, and music.
