Premedical Division Region 5 Director
My name is Jessica Hoff. I was born and raised in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana. I’m currently majoring in Molecular and Cellular Biology and minoring in Chemistry at Louisiana State University in Shreveport (LSUS). My brilliant two-year-old daughter, Miriam, is my world and loves to accompany me on both my academic and personal life endeavors. We adore education through music, art, literature, laughter, and adventure. I consider myself a prime example of the “Nontraditional Student” who had to overcome much to make the most out of the opportunities life provides. I come from a large family and found late in my high school educational career my passion in life. This passion was to advance society. Shortly after this realization I strongly felt the need to achieve my dream through science, education, and communication. After ample growth and involvement in my science organizations on campus I felt the urge for something even more. I quickly found after one simple search online, the beautiful American Medical Women’s Association. Although my daughter was merely a year old, I knew I needed to start a branch at my university! Too many students, many like myself, could utilize this opportunistic organization to help advance their professional and personal growth. I have a genuine passion for the sciences and after this Spring semester comes to an end I will be parting with my dear undergraduate institution along with my leadership roles at said institution. As the new Region 5 Director of AMWA’s Premedical Division I can honestly say I’m very eager to watch the growth, development, and accomplishments within our region and our neighboring regions throughout the Nation.
