"Jessica is fighting, pretty much single handedly for the fair treatment of people working in the motion/performance capture world for films and video games."
"Jessica is not only a delight to keep in contact with, open and personable but most importantly professional and on point every time. She is making the industry a better place not just for performers, but for all in the industry."
