When Jessica was an infant, her parents were told by her Doctors that she would never walk or talk. Anyone that knows Jessica knows she non-stop! Jessica is the inspiration behind ScentsAbility. Started by her mom Bonnie and Daddy John. Medically Jessica has a very rare metabolic disorder and a history of seizures. Thanks to early intervention; including aqua and hippo (horseback) therapy and continued therapies and exercise– Jessica is walking and loves to dance… especially to her favorite singer, Justin Timberlake! She loves everything pink and sparkly; and is just about the most affectionate person you will ever meet. Her heart is pure, she hugs everyone she meets and tells everyone she loves them. Jessica’s smile can light up a room; just like her ABILITY candle with her picture on the label!
Even though Jessica has moderate intellectual and developmental disabilities, she is able to participate in most everything at ScentsAbility and identifies as ScentsAbility Girl! Jessica’s favorite place besides the candle shop is The Statue of Liberty – she has loved her since she was a toddler. Jessica is 36 years young and lives in Coral Springs, FL. She goes to cooking and hip-hop class, exercises at the gym, and her favorite Disney character is Olaf! Favorite Princess….Ana, Favorite movie…Grease. Her crazy talent?...she can fake-sneeze and fool everyone into saying Bless You!
