In college, I started a small Etsy shop and blog from the storage closet in my sorority house. A few years later, and through a very non-linear journey, that small Etsy shop grew into an internationally recognized sweatshirt brand & that little blog led to bestselling books and a publishing career. Now, I'm obsessed about helping other women uncover what they're made to do and take steps to make it happen, too.

Jessica candidly and honestly shares the messy story that gave her a powerful message to share and put her on the path to becoming a public speaker.
When she was 18 years old, shortly after graduating high school, she made a mistake that cost the life of her best friend, and before having to spend four years in prison, she felt led to get in front of other young people her age to prevent the same thing from happening to anyone else.
She went back to her high school and spoke to the student body just before prom, sharing her story through tears. When not a single student was injured or got in trouble that year, she received dozens of phone calls from parents thanking her, and it lit a fire inside of her.
As she puts it, “If we would be brave enough to get beyond our own fears and insecurities, and if we stopped worrying about what others would think, we could physically change lives–and save lives–by sharing our story.”
