From her first grade field trip at the zoo to her wedding day in Sundance Square, Jessica Bowers doesn’t have a childhood memory that isn’t somehow connected to the city of Fort Worth. Although she has traveled far and wide chasing her wanderlust, when it was time to put down roots, she settled in the Metroplex, so she could introduce her four kids to the places she loved to visit as a child.
Her writings about family, travel, and how to mix the two successfully appear in Fort Worth Child, Dallas Child, and Family Fun. She chronicles her family’s travels at Suitcases and Sippy Cups, where she shares the trials and triumphs of traveling the globe with four kids in tow.
Jessica was born in Abilene, TX and graduated from Texas Woman’s University. Her many jobs have included first grade teacher, curriculum developer, and stage manager. But, she is most proud to have the job of mom to four boys, who she homeschools. Her favorite family friendly Fort Worth hangouts are Log Cabin Village, Casa Manana, and the Botanic Gardens.
