Jessica taught business administration at the undergraduate level in Canada and Ethiopia, which developed her love for inspiring people to learn. Her experience in leadership consulting and business coaching fine-tuned her ability to engage clients and create long-lasting results.
Jessica pursued a professional degree at Ivey Business School because of its focus on leadership development and case based-learning. She graduated with honors and was recognized by the school faculty for her exceptional communication and presentation skills. Upon graduation she was hired as a full-time Lecturer. She has authored international business cases and is a published case author on Harvard Business Review.
Through her business and education background Jessica became passionate about helping people overcome imposter syndrome and performance anxiety. She helps others discover the root of the challenges they want to overcome and develops individual action plans for success.
Her background in performance evolved into a love for storytelling and making meaningful connections with an audience. She believes effective communication can transform a business’s ability to reach and exceed goals. Her passion for helping others turns her values into a life-lasting impact on the people she engages with.
Jessica believes that temporary discomfort creates valuable new perspectives and unique opportunities. She loves to push her limits and has travelled to over 30 countries, often solo, with only a backpack and a one-way ticket. She’s created a “survival guide” of life lessons that have inspired audiences to get outside their comfort zones and reach new heights. When she is not at work, you will find her climbing mountains, skiing, exploring new countries and training for races.
