Jessica and her husband, Tim, married three years ago and knew from the beginning they wanted to have a family. They quickly discovered that the journey to parenthood would not be an easy one. After experiencing three consecutive miscarriages due to chromosome abnormalities, they turned to the experts at the Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) for answers. It was at IRH that Jessica and Tim learned that they would ultimately have to undergo IVF treatments if they wanted to realize their dream of becoming parents. With the support of the amazing doctors and nurses at IRH, and after undergoing IVF and PGD testing, they delivered their son in March 2017.
Jessica and Tim were grateful to have a caring and supportive network of family and friends to help them through their struggle with infertility. There was no question they wanted to provide that support for others facing the same battle. Jessica learned about Parental Hope through IRH and knew immediately that this was a way she could pay forward the kindness, knowledge and support she and Tim received on their journey to parenthood. Jessica previously volunteered with Parental Hope as an event co-chair and is honored to be a part of an organization making such an impact in helping couples realize their dreams of becoming parents.
Jessica received her Bachelor’s in Business Administration, Accounting in 2008 from the University of Dayton and her Master’s in Business Administration in 2009 from Northern Kentucky University. She has worked as an audit manager at RSM US LLP, a public accounting firm, for eight years and obtained her Certified Public Accounting (CPA) license in 2014.
She currently resides just north of downtown Cincinnati in Mt. Lookout with her husband, Tim, and their son, Johnny.
