My nickname is … JByrd. I was Jessica Byrd before I became a Thibodeaux.
I can’t go a day without … reading the word!
If you were in my office, you’d … know that I am a holiday fanatic, particularly starting in the fall. I go all out for the holidays—the official office holiday cheermeister.
If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d … probably spend my days crafting. I love quilting, embroidering, etc.
On weekends I … spend time with my wonderful husband and daughter. We enjoy doing so many things as a family on the weekend—taking the boat out being one of our favorites.
The talent I wish I had is … public speaking.
The last TV show I binge-watched was … Gilmore Girls.
Nothing cheers me up like … spending time with my family.
My guilty pleasure is … buying frivolous things off Amazon.
The line I quote most often is … from The Office or Parks and Rec: “I want people to be afraid of how much they love me” is a popular one.
