Meet Intern Assistant Editor, Jessica Higgins!


I’m pleased to introduce Sheila-Na-Gig online readers to Jessica Higgins. Jessica has been one of my English/Creative Writing majors at Ohio University Southern for the past couple of years. She is interning as an Assistant Editor, and I am so happy to have her on board! She currently works in the insurance industry but hopes to put her English BA to use when she graduates this year. She recently married her high school sweetheart, and they have two beautiful boys together. Being a student and mom, she doesn’t get much free time, but when she does she reads.
