Jessica is from the USA, having been brought up in Oregon and Texas. Before coming to Liberec, Jessica taught in Alaska and Arizona. Jessica’s great great grandfather was born in Mladá Boleslav and emigrated to the USA in late C18th. Her great great grandmother was born in Kladno, so after a lapse of around 150 years, her family has returned to Bohemia. Jessica chose Liberec because of its proximity to the mountains and all that offers.
