Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Jessica has lived in many international cities, including Kathmandu, Mumbai, and Los Angeles. She first moved to London more than a decade ago to complete an MA in Cultural Heritage Studies at UCL, and continued her studies in memorials and contested heritage at the PhD level.

During this time she met her English husband, and together they explore London's oddities, scuba dive around the world, drink great craft beer, and eat with gusto at holes-in-the-wall and Michelin-starred restaurants alike. They live in Margate, Kent, with their scruffy Romanian terrier, Arty.
