She started off as an instructor for Parent & Tot classes, was promoted to Deck Supervisor, then finally to Pool Operations Manager and then to Sales and Service Manager. You will never see Jessica without a smile on her face and you can usually catch her somewhere on the pool deck ensuring the children are not only learning but having a blast! Jessica is a mother which comes to no surprise when she starts working her magic with crying/apprehensive children. She has a son named Bentley Mason, who is her absolute world and has made her extremely passionate about being a part of child development.
