Boot Representative: Jessica Kaczmarek
Jessica Kaczmarek is the TDR Midwestern Representative as well as the owner of Above and Beyond Custom Equestrian, Wisconsin's home for all things Kingsley! Jessica has been fitting boots for 2 years now, and started her journey on a chance meeting of a Nature Cobalt Kingsley her trainer Erinn was trying on for size. During the process of deciding the boot was for her, Jessica met Marissa who expressed the need for a qualified boot fitter in Wisconsin. Above and Beyond Custom Equestrian was born out of this need. Jessica has worked directly with Marissa of TDR for her fitting training, and continued education. Marissa has been a mentor and guide to Jessica as they both share a passion for excellence and providing the best experience for their clients. So much so that TDR and ABC partnered up this year to not only expand the options available to Jessica's midwestern clients, but also to enhance the already outstanding client experience and fitter expertise.
When not wearing the tiara and cape of a boot fitter, Jessica works as an outpatient Occupational Therapist with The Advocate Aurora Healthcare system and is based in Neenah, WI. She has been an OT for 25 years and brings a wealth of knowledge as to how the human body works. She is also a Level 1 Certified Therapist through the American Hippotherapy Association and developed Freedom Equestrian Therapy Services, or FETS, which provided hippotherapy services to adults with neurological disorders for 3 years in the Green Bay, WI area.

Jessica is a dedicated student of dressage and is currently showing her horse Calgary JG (AKA Burrito) at I-2 and working towards Grand Prix. Jessica is very humbly proud to say she has done the training of Cal herself and the journey continues to be one of the most challenging and rewarding of her life. She also has her retired Prix St. George horse, Raker who has been with her for 17 years, and currently now shares with her dear friend Sarah Springborn.
Jessica is also joined in life by her very supportive husband Scott and her goofy, sweet and ridiculous Great Dane, Tavish. She would be lost without them both.
