Meet Our Team: Jessica Sheffield
Up next in the ‘Meet Our Team’ series is Jessica, our marketing manager since March 2010. We have changed the format a bit too so each staff member will now be answering a few questions to help our patients get to know them better. Enjoy!
Tell us something that most people don’t know about you?
I used to be a wedding planner! It was a very fun career for about 10 years but it’s also much more stressful that people envision so I eventually needed a change. I am now planning my own wedding even though I am already married. My husband Chris and I actually got married last July while he was home from Afghanistan. Thanks to rain, the ceremony ended up being in our living room in front of about 10 people. Now we are planning a larger ceremony & celebration for May 6th and 7th.
What is your favorite food?
Pizza!! Especially wood-fired pizza. We are even having a ‘traveling wood-fired oven’ at the wedding. If you’re ever in Floyd, VA you have to check out Dogtown Pizza. Yum!
What do you like to do outside of work?
I love spending time with my family, friends and my two dogs. Ellie is a Wheaten Terrier and Scout is a Black Lab. They are like our children! Chris is really into home brewing beer so we also love going to local vineyards & breweries.
What is your favorite place that you have been?
First would have to be Australia (my best friend from high school lives there) but I also loved a ‘road trip’ that a friend and I took once. We rented a convertible and drove from Phoenix, Arizona to Seattle, Washington making stops at the grand canyon, las vegas, LA, san francisco, napa valley, the redwood forest, crater lake national park, and portland, oregon along the way. Oh, and we slept in tents almost the entire time!Read the rest of this entry.
