Jessica Misun, Project Manager

  • Home town: Edmond
  • Family: I could not wish for a more caring, loving and patient husband. Brandon works at Devon Energy for his "real" gig. He umpires college baseball and is an official scorer for the Dodgers during baseball season.

  • Favorite book to read with my child: “Fox in Socks” by Dr. Seuss.  I love to hear Maverick laugh when the tongue twisters get really twisty! 
  • Favorite book to read without my child: What? There is time to read without your child?
  • What I like to do outside of work: I love to be creative and make something out of nothing.
