General Bio:

Jessica and her family moved to Mason four years ago, and her husband Ryan Holbrook serves as the Mason Elementary School principal. They have four children, Hannah, Jaxson, Hailey, and Harper who attend school in Mason and are active in Mason County 4-H livestock projects, food and nutrition and shooting sports. Jessica spent the past twenty years in education working with Texas public school districts, collegiate campuses, and serving as the Schools Coordinator for the San Antonio Zoo.  The past nine years she served in various leadership roles with Texas public school districts, the most recent for Menard ISD.

An avid Aggie, Jessica earned her Bachelor of Science in Wildlife & Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University in 2003 and her Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction as well at Texas A&M University in 2004. She grew up in the FFA system showing pigs, rabbits, and judging livestock in high school. Jessica hopes to bring her unique background to better support AgriLife Extension and Mason County.

As the FCH agent, Jessica’s goal is to provide needed science-based educational resources on current health and wellness trends, diabetes, nutrition, and healthy lifestyles in Mason County.
