Since high school, Jes has had the opportunity to serve as an intern with Mission to the World (MTW) in Japan, worked as an au pair in Germany, and served as a summer intern with MTW in Scotland. Most recently, Jes completed a two-year apprenticeship with Serge in Ireland, while also serving on the youth staff at her home church upon returning home. Jes is pursuing an M.A. in Ministry at Covenant Seminary with the hope of continuing in ministry and possibly returning to the mission field.
