My name is Jessica Bensten and I live in Hampton, Virginia with my two “miracles” Jackson (9) and Abby (5), and my bonus baby, Henry (1). I love capturing stories and photos of my kids and our crazy, lovely, hectic life.
I work as the Creative Director for a public relations agency in Virginia Beach and am a graduate of James Madison University‘s School of Media Arts and Design. I enjoy mixing my talents for graphic design and creative writing with community relations. I am a past member of the NICU Family Advisory Council and the Patient/Family Advisory Council for CHKD and contribute as a featured blogger to Around the Blocks. I also volunteer with miscellaneous graphic design projects for the CHKD NICU, Roc Solid Foundation and SMILE. I love these organizations, so check them out!
As a mother to a childhood cancer survivor and a micro-preemie, I’m passionate about supporting other mothers and families dealing with health issues. All parents have it in them to be a healthcare advocate for their kid. I didn’t set out to know any of this stuff! However, because I do, I hope my experience can serve as a resource for others in their own personal journey with their children.
