Jessica Cristol

Jessica grew up in Battle Lake, MN. She enjoyed growing up in a small town because everyone was like family. After high school Jessica went to the community college in Fergus Falls and after that to Moorhead State University. She graduated with a degree in Social Studies. After college she spent 10 years working for a digital mapping company traveling the world as a Technical Trainer. Traveling is where she met her husband Olivier, who is from France. They try to travel to France every couple of summers where his mom still lives, but have yet to make the big trip to Brisbane, Australia where his father resides.

Jessica has 2 fabulous kids, Elodie and Julien who keep her on her toes at all times.

Jessica love, love, loves to cook. She enjoys the process of researching what she is going to make and how best to make it. She even loves to grocery shop for the meal, but the prep work of cutting up veggies and planning out the details of the recipe are probably her favorite. Jessica loves to spend time with her family and friends, as well as eating good food and trying new restaurants. Jessica’s tip is when making your grocery list, write it in the order of which you walk around the store. This saves time and ultimately, saves money.

“My WHY is my family. My children are the most important thing in my life and I strive every day to set a good example for them. To be kind, generous, gentle and trustworthy are just some of the values I want my children to have. I also want them to see that hard work, dedication and generosity will help us grow and bring joy to our lives.”
