Jesse Westbrook is thrilled to be the Lead Clinical Medical Assistant at Restor Metabolix. A native of Charleston, SC, Jesse graduated Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina in 2019 with a degree in Public Health.

During this time, Jesse continued her education, first completing her training as a Clinical Medical Assistant and later as a Phlebotomist.
