I have created this site to showcase my academic goals and accomplishments, as well as tell you a little about who I am. Thanks for visiting!
My name is Jessica and I was born in Orem, Utah. When I was 18 years old, I travelled to Nepal to volunteer in an orphanage. From there I caught the travel bug and continued around East Asia, then eventually South America. I landed in Hawaii, where I graduated with my BFA in Graphic Design. I was able to study around Europe with a study abroad program called Semester at Sea, through UVA. After graduation I went back to Euoupe and met my husband (who also enjoys travelling, and has been around the world). We moved back to Utah, and were married after 1+ years of painful long distance.
My husband has his Masters in economics, and higher education (specifically M.Arch) has always appealed to me. This December I will be appling for Grad School all over the US. Calculus 1210 is a requirement to get into any M.arch program, so as an architect I can communicate well with engineers.
Make sure I'm taking care of myself. Sometimes I get so busy and caught up in what im doing to eat healthy and do simple things to take care of my body.
Create a Happy Home. For me this means playing with my dog every morning, and making sure my husband knows and feels that I love him, even simple things. More listening to him.
Keep my head up every day. I struggle with depression, and having a positive attitude isn't always easy for me. This goal, is more positivity in my life.
Save & Invest more, basically spend less. I absolutly love making my home beautiful, and this is a reminder to spend less money on home items and eating out, instead - save and invest.
Create passive income by starting a company. Either through PatchMasters, a company my husband and I are starting, OR through my design skills.
Follow my dream of becomming an architect, and work in the built world. Help create, reuse & repurpose materials we already have to beautify this world we live in.
