Born and raised in Edmonton, Jessica has been involved in the world of sports since she was five years old. Instead of trying on ballet shoes, little Jessica tied on the hockey skates and opted to play catch with her Dad in her free time. Playing Softball competitively in Edmonton, Jessica made her way onto Team Alberta when she was 16 and was invited to the training camp for the Women’s Canadian Softball Team in 2005. She also traveled throughout Canada and the United States for tournaments and played against teams from New Zealand, China and Argentina in the Canadian Open Softball International Championship.
When Dodgeball was introduced to her, she couldn’t be more excited that she could utilize all of her specialities into one sport. Utilizing technicality from softball and her intensity from hockey, Dodgeball was the perfect platform for her athleticism.
Playing in the recreational division for a few years, Jessica took a hiatus from Dodgeball in 2010 and moved to Vancouver to branch out her career in marketing. She launched a social media and public relations company that spread throughout Western Canada. Eventually making her way back to Edmonton, she continued to grow her network and has made personal and professional connections with the community which has made her a recommended specialist in the media and marketing industry.
Jessica finally decided to step back into the world of Dodgeball in early 2013 and joined DE’s competitive league in their first season in 2015. She quickly jumped to the opportunity to help Chris and Paul with Dodgeball Edmonton, and is grateful and honored to be working alongside the dynamic duo and to be involved in such a unique and amazing community.
