Jessica Shipmaker - Director
I have been a member of Dixie for 5 years. I've been an active member since my first season, participating in CYOR, Mixed, CYOR and Mixed, and sparing in many other sections when called upon. I occasionally can be found helping out behind the scenes at many of the bonspiels Dixie hosts, as well as participating in them.
I am a flight attendant for Air Canada, and regularly run into curlers (World Champions and some Dixie members too!) while in the friendly skies. Prior to my current career I worked as an executive assistant for several years.
Besides curling I enjoy playing softball, hockey and many other sports. I love to travel and ventured to Latvia this past spring to participate in the Latvian Mixed Doubles Curling Cup where I competed against teams who then went on to the Mixed Doubles World Championships.
