Hi, I’m Jess!

I like hiking, telling corny jokes and spending time with my hubs and my pup. I turned my dorm room startup into a seven-figure business that helps hundreds of thousands of kids fight cancer through fashion. I didn’t have a grand plan but I chose to believe in better.

Now I speak, write and teach to help you create better in your world.

Enough about me,
your audience is waiting!

Headbands of Hope

What started with a few headbands pieced together in a college dorm room has grown to over 500,000 headbands donated – for every headband purchased, we donate one to a child battling cancer.

Chasing the Bright Side

So I’m kicking it up a notch from my first publishing debut when I got in Chicken Soup for the Soul when I was 12 (please, hold your applause).

I wrote a book called Chasing the Bright Side with Harper Collins and it debuted as a #1 New Release on Amazon!
