Jessica Baber is a true Atlanta native, born at Grady Hospital and residing in the Atlanta area since then. Prior to joining BJM Duluth and BJM Group, she was the office manager and project coordinator at a geotechnical engineering firm. What’s that? “They determine whether the ground can support the weight of whatever someone wants to build on it,” Jessica clarified. Over time, her long commute started weighing heavily on her family life, so Jessica began looking for opportunities closer to home.
Jessica first met Hermione Graus from the BJM team after responding to a job posting, and was hired quickly thereafter. “Although I didn’t have a British accent, I think Hermione and Neal realized that my operations experience would be valuable to BJM,” Jessica commented. She was immediately embraced by the rest of the team as well. “Everyone loves their jobs here, and it really shows,” she added.
When Jessica isn’t working with the BJM Group offices, she likes to spend time with her family. Jessica loves hiking and camping with her daughter, whether on the family’s property in South Carolina, or at other regional destinations like the Chattooga River, Blue Ridge Mountains, or Cataloochee Valley. Favorite sports teams include the Georgia Bulldogs and the Atlanta pro teams – Falcons, Braves, and now Atlanta United.
