on a mission

I'm Jessica:

Raised by passionate foodies, I was shown the power of food, movement and quality family time from a young age. However, teaching yoga for years unveiled a truth. After hearing countless women struggle to create “me time”...

The heart-breaking realization hit:

As a mom of 4 and having overcome eating disorders, I want to give you hope. I am living proof that you can finally slow down and accept who you are. There is an aligned balance between your identity as a woman and parent.

Most women feel too overwhelmed to nourish their minds, bodies and passions.

I went from real estate to getting real on women’s health

For years, I was incredibly hard on myself, I—

Worked in real estate (I was one of the youngest people in the USA to become a Certified Commercial Investment Manager) 

Was hyper-critical of my body, which led to eating disorders in my 20s 

Pushed myself in hard exercise classes, always trying to prove I was strong and “enough” 

If I’ve been able to find a slower pace of life, true body acceptance and daily peace, any woman can. 

In 1 year, I gave birth and rebirthed through yoga

The journey to yoga was unexpected, like a surprise package on your doorstep.
 
I’d just had my first daughter and was re-discovering my identity, As a mom, I’m sure you understand. 

Hot yoga showed me the power of flowing, both on the mat and in real life. It showed me I could be a parent and still have time to nourish myself. 

The more I connected back with my body, the more I was able to: 

Be an energetic example to my kids
Slow down, to *ironically* speed up in goals 
Find joy in daily life, with a newfound patience (even with my hubby) 

Explore the membership

Child’s pose has power, but women came to me again and again asking to go deeper. They weren’t taking 5 minutes to meditate at home. They weren’t savoring breakfast. They saw cooking as a chore. 

In short, my clients felt stressed out as f***. 

It’s why I created my membership, so women can FINALLY access all the tools I built for myself and the women who wanted to reclaim their authentic self. 

I founded a yoga studio, and the truth hit: 

Tree Pose wasn’t enough, women needed more 

The *secret sauce* INGREDIENTS OF ME, Jessica

learn

I went to culinary school for fun 

In 2008, this Midwestern gal attended the Art Institute Culinary Program. 

*My dad became a sommelier for pure joy. Turns out... Foodie runs in the family.

travel

MY DREAM RETREAT? A HIDDEN GEM IN TENNESSEE 

I’ve traveled around the world, from African safaris to Aspen getaways. 

My ultimate spot to refuel that doesn’t even have signage, that’s off a hidden road? Blackberry Farm in Tennessee. *The original farm to table experience*

food

My Brussel Sprout Salad is award-winning (literally) 

The cuisine compliments that mean the most are from friends and family.

But Maple Leaf Farms and other magazines happened to agree. ;) 

movement

I admit it: I own a Peloton (Here’s why) 

For our 10th anniversary, my *sweetheart* husband got a Peloton spin bike.

I honestly thought I wouldn’t use it. Pilates, yoga, boxing all filled the calendar. Now, I’m a convert. 

I am a certified yogi, like very certified

I am a two time certified yoga instructor through the Yoga Alliance.
