When Jessica sent me her interview responses, she was kind enough to also send a bio, so I’ll let her introduce herself in her own words:
Jessica from Turquoise Compass is a teacher at heart, but her true passion is traveling (especially to turquoise beaches), adventure, and trying new things. She has been to 32 countries and she is ready to see more.
