Clinical epidemiologist researching neurovascular diseases by day, wannabe-comedian by night, Jess returns to the stage in Berlin after a few years’ hiatus. As a true public health advocate, Jess’ ultimate goal in joining the Berlin CSz team was to make you laugh, because research shows it’s good for your vascular health (seriously… see here and here. She also joined in an attempt to maintain her (in)sanity while working toward her PhD and to prove that nerdy scientists can be funny, too.
Jess grew up in Wisconsin, home to ‘That 70’s Show’, one of the ‘Little House on the Prairie’ houses, cranberries, and the ‘Wall Street of Cheese.’ It’s also the birthplace of ComedySportz (which is way cooler than cranberries, but somewhat less exciting than cheese). She started dancing in the womb and picked up singing and acting somewhere along the way. She has always loved being on stage and has a special talent for getting selected as the ‘audience participant’. She’s been successful in 101 out of 110 attempts (her mom still keeps track).
