Jessie was born and raised in Fayetteville, NC. She is an Elon University alum, a North Carolina debutante and a former Late Show with David Letterman intern.

Prior to Brand Fuel, Jessie worked at Kate Spade’s Fifth Avenue flagship. There, she learned the value of great customer service and developed into one of the company’s top salespeople. Selling promotional products may be different than selling designer purses, but her commitment to customer service hasn’t changed. She’s also extremely detail-oriented and a bit of a perfectionist. (Check out her spreadsheets.)

Jessie lives in Raleigh, NC. Her hobbies include baking, mixology and taking too many pictures of her cat, Finn. She loves a good dad joke.
