Jereka’s career explored
As per Jereka’s LinkedIn page, she’s a Doctor of Education who is based in Manchaca, Texas.
She is the Dean of Specialty Programs at Central Texas Allied Health Institute. Jereka co-founded the Institute back in 2018 and as per the Queer Eye season 6 trailer, it appears that the pandemic likely left her swamped.
In 2011, she graduated from Capella University and later went on to get a certificate in surgical assisting in 2015.
Meet the Queer Eye star on Instagram
Jereka can be found on Instagram @jerekathomashockaday with over 300 followers at the time of writing, but following the series 6 premiere, that number is likely going to skyrocket.
She’s married and looking at Jereka’s IG page, her husband, Ben, celebrated his 39th birthday in 2021. Together, she and Ben have a young son named Carter.
Jereka is 41 years old and, by the looks of her IG page, she’s very family-oriented and also enjoys cooking, so Antoni is likely to enjoy spending time with her during season 6!
