She has been the Director of a yoga-for-youth not-for-profit, Manager of Process Design and Facilitation at the University of British Columbia's Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT), as well as Principal Consultant of her own organizational development and coaching boutique firm in both Montreal and Vancouver.

In her coaching practice, Jessica specializes in coaching her clients to show up authentically and in their power - while maintaining their immense capacity to relate - as she continues to work with her own "cultural programming" as a woman, a leader, and an entrepreneur. She specializes in shining a light on what needs to change, and believes in results-based consulting and coaching.
