Jess may be a passionate philanthropist, courageous thought leader and disruptive motivational speaker, but back home in Ohio, she’s a busy mom of four. She currently travels across the country with “The Igniting Hope Summit” that she founded in April of 2022. 

Jess has found a beautiful way to inspire others through her story of domestic abuse survival and loss. It wasn't until after her ex-husband was sentenced to 20 years in prison, that she felt free enough to publicly share. Now, she teaches others how purposeful their pain is and how powerful their own stories are. Jess has taken something that was meant to break her forever and turned it into a tool to help others in a big way!

One of the many ways Jess helps others everyday, is through her "I Choose Hope" Foundation. An organization dedicated to not just helping domestic abuse victims and their families, but survivors of all trauma in need of help getting back on their feet.

Jess has been featured in multiple media outlets including television, radio, and podcasts across the country. She is thrilled to bring her story of hope, heartache, and healing to you so you too can discover your bigger purpose!
