Jessica graduated from Dartmouth College with a B.A. in Art History and Creative Writing, with a focus in Roman & Greek Mythology. Within a mere 4 years she founded the Dartmouth Food Truck, The Box, and landed her Sorority on probation for executing a series of wild and inventive soirees. Her summers were spent managing restaurants, leading the Sephora campaign for Laura Mercier, creating an artist studio program in Harlem, and evaluating art for Simon Dickinson.
Jessica has a history of hosting events, cooking within her own home and providing intimate dining experiences for small groups of friends and family. Inspired by the success of her hobby and her ambitions to be the most gallant salon host of the 21st century, she decided to open her supper club to the greater public. Vivonne, the contemporary salon, was born.
