Jessica Bland

Donor Specialist

Jessica is originally from Cedarburg, Wisconsin. At age 18 she moved to Washington state and began her career in operational management in the Salon, Spa and Medical industries. 


After many years in the Pacific Northwest, Jessica and her husband wished to be closer to their family, so they made a cross-country trek, returning to Wisconsin, and are now residing in the beautiful Northwoods. 


While in the Tacoma/Seattle area of Washington, Jessica worked 20 years for Gene Juarez Salons & Spas and held various management roles including Academy Director and Salon and Spa General Manager. In 2015 she was offered a Medical Spa Management position with MutiCare Health System, overseeing operations for their three medical spa locations. In 2018 she transitioned out of spa management and into clinic leadership where she managed operations for three Womens’ Health OB/GYN clinics with MultiCare. It was during this time she saw firsthand how essential access to healthcare can be for patients and the communities in which they live.


Jessica is excited and honored to support the efforts of the Howard Young Foundation in advancing healthcare here in the Northwoods. 


When not at work you can find her and her husband Dennis exploring the trails on their bicycles, relaxing in the sun, traveling, or making delicious chocolate and cookie confections.
