Jessica Piquard joined St. Francis CARE in 2017 and is the assistant executive director/event coordinator. She’s here each weekday helping with the day-to-day operations of the shelter. In addition to that, Jessica plans out all the events St. Francis CARE participates in, that includes fundraisers and puppy parties.
Prior to joining us, Jessica was a stay-at-home mom and admits she wasn’t really looking for a job. However, like many folks, visiting St. Francis CARE can change someone’s mind pretty quickly.
“Once I got in here I realized I loved it. Now, here I am!”
Not all of Jessica’s children are human. She has six dogs and three cats. Five of those fur babies were rescued from St. Francis CARE.
“I’ve been a huge animal person all my life. I got in trouble as a child for bringing every stray I found home,” said Jessica.
Jessica calls the work she does here rewarding, especially when an animal finds a forever home. If you want to schedule an event with St. Francis CARE, contact Jessica and get started today!
