Best Story

A standout moment occurred on a career panel at Dell, addressing 5,000 people, Jessica emphasized the importance of taking risks. "You have to be willing to take the risk. You don't know what's around the corner, and you never will if you aren't willing to take the risk". Now she's taking risks every day to leave the legacy she wants to leave behind and empowering others to do the same.

Origin Story

When she was laid off, she took it as a blessing, gift and a sign, it was time to share her story, and expertise on a larger scale! She knew this was her opportunity to do it wholeheartedly and shine brighter than she ever had before. She took some time for herself before forming an LLC, and launching her business and hasn't looked back.

Example talks

Embrace Change and Succeed- Navigating Career Transitions

An Interactive Presentation that can also be adapted into a more extensive workshop to include mock interviews and resume building - In the last few years there have been quite a few massive layoffs, especially in the tech industry. Did you know, women have been impacted by 45% of those layoffs?. When looking at the numbers it seems proportionate, but, women have only made-up for an average of 27% of the tech workforce in last few years. So although this is is applicable to all individuals, women in tech are currently two to three times more likely to be laid off. Through Embrace Change and Succeed, I  provide individuals with 6 actions to take and various resources to utilize to successfully navigate their transition and secure the job they want.

Unlock Your Future- The Power of VIsion Boards and Manifestation

Interactive Workshop- We often get so caught up in day to day lives that we find ourselves focusing on the small screen, not the big picture. This limits our vision of where we want to be
not only 3-5 years from now but also what it's going to take to get us there. When looking at personal development and self-discovery, vision boards and manifestation have been used as powerful tools for clarifying goals and bringing dreams to fruition for centuries.
These practices are rooted in the belief that taking the time and aligning your thoughts, emotions, and intentions can influence the course of life and attract positive outcomes. I facilitate this workshop to empower those feeling “stuck” or need guidance to get from where they are to where they want to be. I do this by partnering with them to unlock the power within themselves and go after what they desire.

Takeaways: The participants will learn the history of vision boards and manifestations, what they are, how and why creating a vision board coupled with positive manifestations can help build your future. The participants will create their own personal vision board to take home as their blueprint to achieve their goals, including the hard stuff.
