Financial Aid Director
Heartland Welding Academy is Jessica’s first endeavor in the welding industry, but she has been married to a welder for 14 years. Her background is in marketing and promotion and she holds both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Mass Communication. Jessica handles financial aid, as well as marketing at HWA.
Jessica is a Missouri native, but since meeting Chuck in 2006 they have lived in Tennessee, Texas and now Wichita. Jessica spends her free time with her 7 year old son and is a huge sports fan, especially the Chicago Cubs.
Even though Jessica hasn’t always been in the welding industry she is a believer and has seen first-hand the opportunities trade skills can offer.
“Work ethic, networking and opportunity can get you just as far, if not further than, a college education. Formal education has its value, but it’s not the only path and it doesn’t guarantee success.”
