Hey there! My name is Jess. I am a Wisconsin gal, born and raised! I call Minneapolis home these days. I studied communications and public relations at the University of Wisconsin and proceeded to work in digital marketing and the fast paced world of special events for ten years.

What I enjoyed the most at work was helping others solve their challenges. So many times I didn’t even realize that I was coaching friends through their crisis moments. This deep dive in personal development spurred a passion for authentic leadership and confident personal development. Founding Career Love Collective was a natural fit.

I’ve worked with individuals who are firm in their career decisions, needing executive leadership skills to get them to the next level AND I’ve coached women unsure on their career path, just working a job to collect a paycheck, desiring more.

In my free time, I love to watch films, read and brunch with my hubby, Terry.  I am currently pursuing my Masters of Business in Leadership Development at Hamline University in Minneapolis.  

Each woman I serve has a unique story with a unique program tailored specifically for their needs. I look forward to chatting with you soon.
