hi, I'm jessica.

This is my interactive resume.

I have highlighted courageous and wildly passionate women throughout my personal website because they have deeply inspired me. Consider this 'credit where credit is due.' 

Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston Marathon in 1967. When organizer Jock Semple realized a woman was running he tried to tackle her.

about

Jessica_Marquez_Headshot_Cropped.jpg
JESSICA L MARQUEZ

I am an MD candidate Texas Tech Health Science Center El Paso with a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Biology passionately pursuing a career in plastic and reconstructive surgery. I am drawn to plastic surgery as it is the unique intersection between form and function ultimately melding my desire to hone in on a life long craft with my love of medicine. After completing a one-year research fellowship with the University of Utah Division of Plastic Surgery, my specific interests lie in reconstructive microsurgery, breast, and gender affirming care. 


In my spare time, I am either making art (loosely defined...) reading poetry, practicing kintsugi, skiing (poorly), apres skiing (expert), traveling, or going on long walks with my two doggos.
