YP Champion of the Month: Jessica Monroe

Tell us about yourself. Where do you work and how long has Lincoln been home?

Lincoln has been home for almost 10 years, I moved here from Roseland, Nebraska to go to college at the University of Nebraska, which to this day has been on the best decisions I’ve made! I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations, shout out to the J-School! I’m fortunate to be working with some of the best people here in Lincoln at BancWise Realty, where we get to help people every day!

How or why did you get involved with Lincoln YPG?

I got involved with YPG because of FOMO, I noticed all the awesome things going on here in Lincoln and wanted to be a part of it!

Why do you love Lincoln? What keeps you here? Why did you move here?

I love Lincoln for many reasons, but the sense of community is the glue that makes this city great! A community where we want to help each other and a mindset where when one person wins, we all win. I believe the people of Lincoln; the talent and energy are what has put Lincoln on the map! For that reason, I love calling Lincoln home!
