Jessica Mojica traces her roots back to the humble beginnings of her parents in Puerto Rico, taking great pride in the heritage that has helped mold her.
“My parents worked extremely hard to give us opportunities they did not have to learn and grow,” she said. “While I was born in the United States, I spent a good amount of my childhood summers in Puerto Rico.”
“I’m proud to be Puerto Rican,” Mojica added. “You can take us off the island but the island spirit carries with us wherever we go in life. Spanish music is always playing in our home and we still make many traditional Puerto Rican foods each and every week.”
Mojica has carried that sense of pride in her culture and the strong work ethic instilled by her parents with her throughout her life, helping to build a successful career in banking and finance.
“I’ve been in banking my entire career, starting at the age of 16 in lockbox operations, moving to transit and then investigations,” she said. “I later worked in various roles within accounting and operations before switching over to personal trust administration in 2013, and I now serve as Vice President and Senior Trust Administrator at Christiana Trust Company of Delaware, a subsidiary of WSFS.”
As Mojica climbed the corporate ladder, she’s continued to seek opportunities to continue her own growth, putting her strong work ethic into action.
“I have an associate degree in accounting from Goldey-Beacom College,” she said. “In addition, I have earned my Certified Trust and Fiduciary Advisor (CTFA) Certification, and am currently working toward obtaining a paralegal certificate with a concentration in estate planning from Widener Law School. I am also considering getting my bachelor’s degree in legal studies.”
Having worked hard in her career from the age of 16, Mojica shared some tips and advice for others looking to grow and advance professionally and personally:
