Hi, It’s Me

It’s time to get down to business.  I’m a no-nonsense kind of gal, I believe in tough love, honesty and hard work.  I know that smooth seas never made a skilled sailor and I know that diamonds are made under pressure!  You know what…you know all of those things too, even if we don’t like it sometimes…we know that hard work pays of

I’m Jessica – I’m a full time working mother of 2.  I have had a history of trial and error and more error and I still don’t know if I’m doing it right…but I’m doing it.  I’m an engineer by degree…I have worked in manufacturing my entire career, a totally male dominated industry.  I’ve moved 6+ times for my job(s), I’ve clawed my way through the things men would say to me like “you’ll change your mind once you have a family” like being patted on the head like a small child.  I’ve been told to toughen up, I’ve been told that my dress was too short for an executive dinner.  I’ve had to ask for a pay raise to be even close to my male predecessor, I’ve been too afraid to ask (more than once.  I’ve learned that tough guys are assertive and confident and bold women are bitches.  90% of my bosses have been men with stay at home wives.  I’ve had to endure countless judging questions like “so your husband just follows you around for you career?” He’s not a fucking dog…he’s an awesome husband.

I’ve lived in a body that I hated, I’ve cried when I’ve tried on clothes.  I’ve judged myself, I’ve judged others.  I’ve been selfish, I’ve been mean.  I was once filled with envy and defeat.  I have regrets.

I’m here now.  I love my job.  I love fitness coaching.  I love my body and I love my insides (most of the time).  I’m a good friend, I’m a good mom, I’m a good fitness coach and I’m a good wife (most of the time).  I’m ready to make the world a more balanced place.  I want to help women achieve EVERYTHING they ever wanted and I want to help men be successful in the changing family and work dynamic.  I want to be the mentor I always wanted.

I want to be great.
