Jessica Nakano is a proud 29 year old Slytherin, newly married to her (Gryffindor) Japanese husband where they travel frequently. A Gemini, working in Pittsburgh, PA, but born and raised in LA, California. She considers her second house Ravenclaw (you can thank Pottermore for that) and her Ilvermorny house is Horned Serpent.
She is very proud to be a part of the social media team and grew up with the books and with Harry. An English relative sent books 1 & 2 to Jessica and her sister when they were young, and she actually hid the books under her bed, intimidated by them. J.K. Rowling saved her with her magical world and gave her confidence. She is the reason why Jessica loves to read and write, because as a child she was shy, bullied and scared of her abilities to read.
In her teens she wrote fanfic and managed a role playing forum and website online, teaching herself how to code and create graphics. In her muggle life, she has been a dancer since the age of 4 and is now a professional ballerina with the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre, dancing alongside her husband. Together, they are also hosts with Airbnb and welcome people into their home as a side business.
She is known as the goto Harry Potter nerd in the company and always likes to test people on how much they know. Mugglenet and HP podcasts have made her still feel connected to the fandom. With her busy life, she loves to reconnect with her Potter family online.
