My name is Jessica Hickok and there are several things that have made me tick since 1978. The most important is my immediate family, the hubs since 1998 and my two boys since 2000 and 2003 respectively. You do the math on all that. I love to talk about everything from my family, my job to shoe shopping. If you click the "Ancient History" category, you might discover more.

What I Do:

I am the Association Executive for the local Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS® and also run the general operations of the regional MLS based here in Springfield. It’s not because I am a recovering REALTOR® of 14 years.  It’s because I actually like what I do and I have a quirky passion for the organization.

Some “About Me” Highlights:
  • A long time ago, I was a REALTOR® and property manager.  Yeah, I have some good stories loaded with sarcasm.
  • I was one of Springfield Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” recipients in 2011.
  • I spoke about residential property management at the Annual Conference for the National Association of REALTORS® each year from 2009 through 2012.
  • In 2008, I started the local chapter of JDRF Ozarks.  (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).  I am a juvenile diabetic on an insulin pump and JDRF Ozarks has my heart.  Now under the direction of the amazing staff, the local non-profit raises almost a half million dollars each year for Type 1 diabetes research.  One day a cure will come.
  • I once had a vision to design my own shoe line.  I actually have five proto-types already designed and ready to be manufactured.  Maybe one day.
  • I am a girl geek who likes to design websites, develop apps and talk tech.  But I am self taught and only know enough to be dangerous.

This website and blog posts are personal opinions and thoughts.  Although I talk about my work A LOT, the views and opinions expressed on this web site are not those of the Greater Springfield Board of REALTORS®.

Oh and I am not a doctor either.  So don’t take anything I say as medical advice.
