About

Powerful Professionals

…don’t make excuses. THEY MAKE THINGS HAPPEN. 

…don’t dream it would be different. THEY MAKE IT DIFFERENT.  

…know they were not created to fail. They were created to THRIVE, and success is the GREATEST RESPONSE to those who told them they can’t.  

…choose to surround themselves with those who INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE, AND EMPOWER.

…recognize there is an ABUNDANCE of business to be had.

…are not distracted by the latest shiny object. They are focused on proven strategies that is in their sweet spot of gifts and talents.

…know that their passions ARE NOT AN ACCIDENT. THEY ARE THEIR GOD-GIVEN SUPERPOWERS.

…do not waste a dollar out of their pocket, minute of their time, or ounce of their talent.  Yet, they can’t invest fast enough in the tools they need to get them to where they want to go.

…don’t get even. THEY GET AHEAD .

…do not compromise on things most important to them. They are flexible in their “how” but never flexible in their “why.” Family and faith are not a distraction BUT A DRIVING FORCE.

…know that success doesn’t always happen on the first try or second or even the third. But success is INEVITABLE to those who keep trying.

…don’t give up when things get hard. THEY PUSH HARDER.

Powerful Professionals don’t wish for change. THEY ARE THE CHANGE.

In her former job as the Managing Director and Make Up Artist for Make Me Up, GA, an on-site hair & makeup company is how she first met Kim Walsh Phillips. She flew down to Orlando, Florida for a Power Summit, and did the makeup for her team. A relationship was built (especially over the fact they both LOVE coffee) and are both Jersey Girls living in Georgia! Jessica says “It’s funny how the people we meet and the relationships we build can totally change your life for the better.”
Jessica holds a BA of Science in Marketing from FIT in New York City, has a 13 year education background with several teaching certifications (including Montessori), was in the top 2% of a Network Marketing company for 7 years, and is a certified Makeup Artist.
When Jessica is not working, she’s enjoying life being a mom of 2 amazing teen daughter’s whom there is never a dull day! She loves God (Church on Sunday’s...YES!) and her morning devotional time. Weight training is a part of her morning routine, all things beauty & fashion, and all aspects of health & wellness. You can often find her reading a good book (or 2 or 3 at a time) on a work related topic, personal growth/mindset, finance, parenting, faith & relationships, with a cup of coffee in her hand, of course! She loves to travel, where you can usually find her on the beach, surrounded by palm trees with the warm sun shining bright. Ahhhh! Jessica lives in the foothills of Georgia for almost 15 years, yet she is a “Jersey Girl” at heart. She shares her home with her two daughters, her super cute & playful Malshi dog Cali, and a goldfish that never dies.
