Although she was born a Texan, Jessica Hood is a proud Charlottean. Her connections through F.I.G. Bible study led her to an opportunity to join the Anne Neilson Home team in February of 2015 as the assistant director of sales. She was promoted to director of new business and sales in August 2016. Growing up, Jessica was aware of her mother’s natural design style and attention to detail. She has credited her mother for teaching her the right meaning of originality, style, and elegance. This influence led her to actively pursue a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising at the University of South Carolina. While studying, she pursued her passion for design and fashion by enrolling at the Cite Universitaire in Paris, France, and studying design in London, England.
