As a student she received a competitive internship with Nissan North America in the area of Community Relations and later worked as a freelance reporter for the Jackson Free Press (now known as the Mississippi Free Press). Jessica went on to earn a master’s degree in Public Relations from the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg.

She began a professional blogging career in 2012 that afforded her some of the most notable accomplishments and accolades of her career. She has interviewed a number of celebrities and reality TV stars, appeared in multiple commercials, worked with dozens of national and international brands and participated in and hosted many events for several causes.

She created Simien Media Group in 2015 and began consulting as a freelancer with various clients.
