Keynote Speaker l Author
Hey. I'm Jessica.
A wife, mother, speaker, author and joy bringer. After loss and massive heartache I have made it my life mission to help women get unstuck after experiencing grief and loss.
My mission is all about embracing the beautiful chaos and helping you understand we don't have to have it all together. I believe and know that we can build a life by design that we once only dreamed of. What I know to be true life is short and we need to live it to the fullest so let's DREAM BIG. GO ANYWHERE. DO ANYTHING.
