Born and raised in New Jersey (USA), Jessica developed a strong passion for fitness at the age of 15; she became fascinated by a health magazine, and found the desire to sculpt a figure similar to the model’s in there.
As a result, Jessica set foot in the gym and began lifting weights – kickstarting her fitness journey.
