Professional Summary

My name is Jessica Claire. I moved to Los Angeles over two years ago and it has truly changed my life. When I moved to LA, I didn't know many people, so I utilized this alone time to my full potential and really dug deep within myself to figured out why I am here on this earth. With months of active listening within myself, I then found my purpose and what is truly important for me and how I want to give back to this earth, which is, to help and guide humans through the unconditional love and energy that animals provide. It is undeniable that animals, if given the chance, can change a human life. This life altering realization lead me to The Animal Behavioral Institute where I underwent classed for a certification program: Assisted Animal Therapy. In September, I completed my courses. I am honored to be sending in my resume with you and I hope we can meet in person!
