Jess Martinez is a native Bronxite who finally made her way to Brooklyn to see what the hype is all about; she agrees with it. She is the happy owner of a sassy shih tzu, Sally, who is responsible for her love and respect for all animals. It is due to this immense appreciation for critters that she now also owns a turtle, fish and a hamster, and admittedly sees more animals in her future. She is more than thrilled to look after your loved one and will take care of your pet as if it were her own! Jess graduated with a BFA in Dramatic Writing at SUNY Purchase. She currently hosts a monthly-themed reading series in the Lower East Side called Big Words, Etc. She also reads A LOT.
