Jessica is an undoubted leader and influencer - I loved listening to these first few episodes of her new podcast. She’s empowering us all through her honesty, transparency and sharing of personal lived experiences. As she noted, she’s aggressively and purposefully disrupting her “prescribed path” as an indigenous woman. Through her guests, she's curating other notable voices to help us all grow. Excited for more episodes!
