In addition to working at AU, Jessica Wells also has her own cookie business.
Something the JagNation does not know about you:

I have been a cookie baker for 20 years. I started this journey as a child — it was my way to give my family Christmas gifts from the heart. After years of perfecting my craft, I officially started my cookie business four years ago.

How has COVID-19 changed/affected your job? 

I am not able to interact with people face to face on a daily basis.
