Jessica was one of the best keynote speakers I have ever heard. She was interactive and fun. Her message was clear and well understood. I felt energized after hearing her speak!

In 2013, Jess experienced her own call to action. During that summer, she successfully completed a 23-year-old dream of bicycling 4,197 miles across the country. Solo. In her keynote, Jess shares the extraordinary journey of preparing and fulfilling a major life goal, and relates her experience to key lessons that empower leaders to create positive change within the Public Health and Education sectors. Jess is able to customize her keynote to benefit diverse audiences, and breathes life into her narrative by sharing photos and videos that incorporate the balance of work and play. She motivates her audiences to create personal calls to action, and has her participants up and moving throughout the hour-long presentation to provide an atmosphere that welcomes movement, connection, and change.
