Jess Smith, BS
Jesstyne, fondly known as Jess, grew up in Northern California. In college, she bounced between majors, ironically starting with child development and finishing with a Bachelors in Sociology. After college, she moved to Dana point in 2014, not fully aware of the reasons (she didn’t even have a job lined up!). She has always been creative and drawn to whatever kind of art/craft she could get her hands on. Her journey over the last few years has brought life back to the dream of art as a career. The opportunity to work for a program allowing her to share her knowledge and excitement for art with the next generation is nothing short of a dream come true.
