Jessica has a natural tendency to catalyze personal and collective growth. She was most recently a manager at the University of British Columbia's Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT), where she led the bi-annual Course Design Intensive as well as the Design and Facilitation series for faculty and staff. She currently has her own organizational development consultancy and coaching practice - presently located in Vancouver, and formerly in Montreal. In her twenties, Jessica was the director of a yoga-for-youth start-up in Ottawa.
Jessica holds a Master's in Human Systems Intervention, a holistic degree in organizational development and group dynamics, as well as an Honours BA in Asian Religions. She is a certified Integral Coaching Canada Coach (ICC), and is also a visual artist who could spend half her life painting.
In her coaching practice, Jessica specializes in coaching women to show up authentically, in their power - while maintaining their immense capacity to relate - as she continues to work with her own "cultural programming" as a woman.
