School of Law

Jessica Wood

Jessica is originally from Texas but has spent the majority of her life living in Northern Virginia and Virginia Beach, except for the four years she spent serving active duty in the U.S. Army, including a tour in Iraq in 2003. After her service in the Army, she spent three years in the Air Force National Guard and graduated summa cum laude, from Old Dominion University with a Bachelor of Health Science in Cytotechnology and became certified to practice by the American Society of Clinical Pathology. She then began working for Sentara as a Cytotechnologist where she eventually reevaluated her calling. Realizing her heart was with those who lacked a voice of their own, she decided on becoming an attorney so she could be that voice. Jessica continues to work for Sentara as a Cytotechnologist and is in her final year in the Law School and will graduate in May.  With the heart of a servant, she thoroughly enjoys serving the Regent graduate community as a Law Senator and feels blessed to have this opportunity to learn and grow from other students and leaders alike.
