In ad­di­tion to be­ing a fit­ness model, Jes­sica Wil­son is also a vet­eri­nar­ian who spe­cial­izes in den­tistry and oral surgery. She at­tended NYU for un­der­grad­u­ate stud­ies, then went to Ross Univer­sity School of Vet­eri­nary Medicine on the is­land of St. Kitts and the Univer­sity of Min­nesota to earn a doc­tor­ate in vet­eri­nary medicine. “I be­came in­ter­ested in fit­ness dur­ing my res­i­dency,” she says. “I needed a healthy out­let to man­age my stress.” Wil­son earned her IFBB Bikini pro card in July, and she cred­its her sup­port sys­tem with help­ing her suc­ceed. “My hus­band, Chris, is my big­gest sup­porter, and my mother, Ra­mona, is my ul­ti­mate role model,” she says. “Plus, my coach, Kim Oddo, has been piv­otal in the trans­for­ma­tion of my physique.” Wil­son’s amaz­ing abs are on dis­play in “Shake It Up” on Page 72.
