The daughter of a free-spirited, surfing waitress and a professional cross-country mover, Jessica discovered most of the country from the dog trot of an eighteen-wheeler before turning 5 years old. She was raised along the banks of the Sabine River and was fortunate enough to be able to call both Texas and Louisiana home. She embraces her naturally curious soul, love of nature, and appreciation for culture. After marrying a 4th generation farmer who had never taken a vacation, an entirely new adventure began. They now split their time between farm chores and traversing the globe. You can join them on their many (and sometimes muddy) adventures at www.TheRootedGypsy.com.
