A native New Yorker, Jessica Torres grew up in Brooklyn knowing all her life she wanted to be a writer. As a child she would put together newsletters for the residents in her apartment building. She studied at Hunter College in New York City and at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris. Jessica started her career as a photography assistant working with renowned photographer, Benjamin Oliver. After shifting her focus from images to words she worked for Parents magazine and Ser Padres before joining Siempre Mujer in 2006 as an editorial assistant in the beauty and fashion department where she styled fashion stories and developed a passion for writing about beauty. In 2009, Jessica’s affinity for all things style, home décor and entertaining led to writing Siempre Mujer’s home section. As Siempre Mujer’s Beauty and Lifestyle Editor, she curated gift guides, identifies trends, contributes to the beauty pages and inspires beautiful living in the home section.
