About Jessica Acs

Originally from Victoria BC, Canada, I'm now living in Chicago IL. I mostly just make mini albums now, and I’m the author of Memory Makers Book: “Outstanding Mini Albums”, 2009. I am a Certified Ranger Educator and I previously taught classes in Vancouver BC, as well as at Scrapbooking Conventions around the USA. I'm also an Exotic Animal Trainer/ Wildlife Educator and with my husband we do educational live animal shows for schools, parties and events. We literally have a small zoo at our home, with over 70 different animals. To add even more excitement to our lives, we recently became new parents when we welcomed our baby girl, Ava, in July 2012. As well as here at Homeketeers, I can be found over on my other 2 sites: www.jessicaacs.com and www.outstandingminialbums.com
