Paralegal / Administrative Assistant, Denver, CO

Paralegal Certificate Paves the Way for Transition into the Legal Field


Paralegal / Administrative Assistant

Jessy is a 5th generation Denver native! After attending college for a couple of years at Adams State University, she returned home and worked in the pet care industry for six years, working her way up to Operations Manager for a dog daycare and boarding facility in Golden.

She loved what she did but wanted to push herself to try a different career path in the legal world. In 2023, she attained her Paralegal Certificate from Metropolitan State University and began applying for work at law firms.

Jessy connected with J. Kent Staffing from our job posting for a temp-to-hire Administrative Assistant at a Denver law firm that represents federal employees and their unions. After an impressive interview with our client, she got the job and soon realized how many transferable skills she had gained from running and operating a business. Her adaptability, positive attitude, and strong work ethic have made all the difference and, in the short time since she started in October 2023, she is proud to have taken on the title of Paralegal.

Outside of work, Jessy enjoys camping, off-roading, and spending time with her two dogs. Other hobbies of hers include reading, baking, and gardening – a true Taurean at heart!

Jessy – we are proud of you for getting out of your comfort zone and making the switch to an exciting new career!
