A little bit about my experience:

I’m a NY native, currently living in San Diego, CA. I’ve worked for large companies in addition to savvy start-ups and thrive in fast-paced environments. I have a B.S. in Cognitive Science with a focus on Human-Computer Interaction from U.C. San Diego. I’m a certified scrum product owner (CSPO) and I studied Spanish in Uruguay, Peru and Ecuador. Plus, I’m fun.

In developing executive presentations and strategic pitches, Jessica has a unique ability to identify the key research issues and distill the commentary in a meaningful way; reducing both the time and expense associated with using traditional means and resources. As a result, her efforts and work product provide significant “value add” to our organization. David Field, CEO at OneRoof Energy
Jessica is an extremely personable and communicative consultant. She is an expert in her field and really helped me take some of the mystery out of in-bound marketing. She provided lots of great ideas, was up-to-date on the work in her field, and was honest about what would work and what would not work in this realm. I recommend her highly. Desha Crownover, Owner & Artistic Director at Prodigy School of Arts
I worked with Jessica at One Roof Energy and have a great appreciation of her skill set, business accumen and personality. Jessica is highly intelligent, has keen insight into business goals, strategy and tactics. She was my sounding board for new products and innovations.Jessica’s bright personality, positive attitude and experience helped to keep team morale high and effective. She is a positive addition to any team and I would love to work with her again. Martin Green, Owner at Broadpath Technical Management
Jessica helped define the target-customer, marketing strategy and web content for my business, Synergy Massage & Wellness. She took the time to understand my personal approach, long term vision and the user experience in order to develop the right messaging for my clients and my business goals. Jessica is wonderful to work with and has always been my go-to person when it comes to developing and growing my business. Linda Mach, Owner at Synergy Massage and Wellness
Jessica is a wonderful sales executive. She is smart, hard working, and has an awesome attitude. She “gets” new ideas quickly and is proactive in testing new messages and offers with customers. She seeks out input and is always looking to improve. She is great to work with, highly recommend her. Bill Trenchard, Parter at First Round Capital
Jessica was one of the first people we hired in sales when we started Vista Solar. Although we hired her to sell solar installations, we soon learned that she was capable of much more. She helped us forge a marketing plan consisting of TV commercials and print ads and helped us formulate customer presentations, our website and much more. Anyone who has met Jessica knows that she is a capable individual. Her communication and presentation skills are excellent and she is a superb writer. She is very personable and connects with people quickly and sincerely. Patrick Callinan, Owner & President at Vista Solar
Jessica is one of those rare talented people who can do just about anything and always wants a new challenge. She excelled in her research role, but found her real passion while working on new business activities – she is an excellent sales person. Jessica gets into the hearts and minds of the customer by knowing her product well, developing a strong understanding of the market limitations and options, and by bringing a contagious enthusiasm to everything she does. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire Jessica again.  Annie Longsworth, Owner/CEO at Siren Agency
