Thanks for stopping by! Here’s a peek inside my life...

I like tacos. Any dog that will let me pet it. Any person that leads with high fives. Any movie with a happy ending. And any airline that gives out cookies.

My husband, Jake, and I met in college when he was playing football and I was giving recruits campus tours. Now we live with our fluff ball, Ollie, and enjoy camping and burning pizzas.

Speaking of pizza, I did my first speaking engagement for a slice of pizza! Now I speak all over the world to companies and conferences about using optimism to activate our purpose and write our own story.

One thing I noticed while speaking was the lack of women in keynote spots, which is why I started Mic Drop Workshop: an online course + community to help women make an impact and an income through public speaking.

But all of this began with this college dorm room startup with the mission to give headbands to kids with cancer. Now, Headbands of Hope is sold in 1.5k+ retail locations and has donated headbands to every children’s hospital in America and 15 countries!

I like to keep it real and share my thoughts, funny stories, mistakes and things I’m working on (or trying to) in my #Notesfromjess email series. My mom and a few thousand other people are subscribed.

Want to see how we can work together? Or do you have a joke that kills at parties? An enchilada recipe I should try?Shoot me a message!
