Jessi is a creative, organized and laid-back girl mom with a soft spot for country music and all that it entails. While in college, she crossed paths with her 6th-grade sweetheart and was swept off her feet by the lively, adventurous and hard-working man he had become. Jessi and Kurt married in 2011 and are the proud parents of two sassy little girls. They are putting down roots in West Branch, Iowa, just a few miles from their hometown of West Liberty. Jessi works from home and enjoys baking, crafts, bargain hunting, party planning, and taking in the simple joys of life. She is admittedly addicted to Pinterest, is passionate about philanthropy, and is completely smitten by the adventure of motherhood.
