Jess Nelson



Jess is the new Adoption Assistant here at OPL and we CAN’T WAIT for you to see the new things she has in store! She’s a Michigan native, but don’t hold that against her – she wears purple and gold on game days! When she isn’t spending time with her American Bulldog, Tia, at the dog park, you can usually find her with a nose in a book, spending time with her friends and family, or finding some great live music and a glass of wine.

After studying Political Science and Communications she worked in Washington DC and on political campaigns in Michigan and Louisiana before spending the past 10 years in restaurant and retail management. She then joined our family here at OPL, but in more ways than one. Not only is she our Adoption Assistant and handling all our marketing, but she is also one of our birth moms. She had such an amazing experience with the OPL team that she just had to come work here!

She is focused on helping our OPL family grow and growing the resources and programs we offer our birth moms. She believes Birth Moms are the strongest women she knows and they deserve to be cherished and supported in every way. She can’t wait to be on this journey with each of you and be there every step of the way!
