Jessica Roe 
Operations Manager

Jessica, a born and raised Phoenix native, began her journey with Professional Placement almost 15 years ago. On the same day Jessica called us, she was sent on an interview with a client and was quickly hired for the job. It was an in-house sales position where Jessica had a chance to grow tremendously. She developed very strong Customer Service and Administrative skills, which would be very valuable in the next steps of her career. After about 7 years in the Sales position, the company had outsourced their sales team and Jessica made another call to us. This brought a new opportunity as an Administrator and Sales / HR support with another great company, where she discovered her love of wearing many hats. After several years, Jessica was in search of more growth opportunity and reached out again to Professional Placement. This time, it led her to become a valued member of our team as an Employment Coordinator. Jessica continues to grow and expand her skills, and is now our Operations Manager. She enjoys the balance of working directly with clients and candidates, as well and handling back office organization and Administrative tasks. Jessica loves helping others and is exceptional at managing the back-office operations for the team.

Jessica loves living close to her family and calling Arizona her forever home.
