Jessica is the first-time author of "Shadow Boxing and Other Bizarre Adventures of a Blind Girl". Born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada, she is currently working in Financial Services, and has been accused by friends and family of being an amateur comedian.
Jessica, as well as several members of her family, live with Retinitis Pigmentosa.
In 2016, at the age of twenty-eight, Jessica lost enough of her vision that she is now legally blind.
Jessica hopes to raise awareness for those living with vision loss through her memoir, as well as sharing tangible skills and support for those facing the looming threat of blindness, based on her first-hand experience.
The descent into blindness can be a dark and lonely path, but Jessica hopes that by sharing her story she can help light the path for another lost soul.
