Jessica B. : Assistant Manager

Jessica B.

Assistant Manager

Possibly raised by wolves in the 13th century, Jessica's true origins remain unknown. She's been said to have the ability to soothe a wayward beast with merely a glance. Some have claimed to hear the ethereal sound of a cello playing from within her enchanted woods, others have heard a piano, still others a flute. Only one thing is for certain - she is employed at the Folsom Grind. Jessica's hobbies include taming and domesticating the fabled Canis lupus familiaris, performing the musical suites of olde, and deciphering tomes.
Favorite Drink: Vanilla Latte
