Jessica has been a freelance writer for six years. She writes on a broad range of topics but specializes in finance (specifically loans), insurance, pharmaceuticals, and food. She holds a degree in English from SUNY Albany and a degree in baking and pastry from the Culinary Institute of America. While she is originally from New York State, she now resides in the south, where it’s much warmer. She lives with her husband and daughter, as well as a cranky English Bulldog and noisy but cuddly cat.
