The Real Deal:

Hi! I'm Jess. In case you couldn't tell by that intro up there, I love to keep a lot of variety in my life. But whether I'm writing about blobfish, teaching others about the art of creative living, or drawing cartoon bunnies in the margins of my notebook, there's one thread that runs through it all.

I'm passionate about helping you tap into your creative power, so you can discover your voice, embrace your awesome, and share your magic with the world. I do this through books, classes, and virtual pep talks whenever needed.

There is so much within you to share, I want to help you find it, own it, and share it!
