After discovering that graphic design could be a career in college, Jessica made the Dean’s List two years in a row and earned a B.A. in Visual Communications: Communication Design from UB. From there, she journeyed through some of WNY’s most noted agencies as a graphic designer, art director and manager of studio services, respectively. In the latter role, she managed a team of seven graphic designers, assigned projects, coached and evaluated the execution of brand standards and ensured quality. Her aesthetic leadership continues at The Martin Group where she collaborates with various departments to allocate resources, manage workflow, improve efficiency and help effectively meet client needs. When she and her husband aren’t raising their daughter, Jessica likes to explore new places and try new cuisines.
