Jessica Claire
Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105 (555) 432-1000,

I grew up in an agricultural family, and after finishing college, I continued working in agriculture until 1995. During this time, I built a successful company that recycled edible food waste into animal feed. In this business, I managed and operated all types of heavy equipment and machinery. I sold this business to a competing enterprise.

In the following years, I purchased and operated our hometown newspaper with my wife and I serving as co-publishers. While owning the newspaper, I also built and operated a big-game hunting ranch with 450 acres under high fence. Eight years ago, I purchased one car wash and a year later, I built another. I currently still own the car washes.

My wife and I have now entered into a new chapter in our lives and have made Steamboat Springs our permanent home. My wife has taken the job as editor of the Steamboat Today, and I am anxious to begin working in a new field.
