Jessica Hoff

Premedical Division Region 5 Director

My name is Jessica Hoff. I was born and raised in Shreveport-Bossier, Louisiana. I
majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology and minored in Chemistry at Louisiana State
University in Shreveport. My brilliant three-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 adore working with the inspirational individuals in both our
National Leadership Team along with the many other individuals that make up the
American Medical Women’s Association. As the 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
