Jessica commenced her traditional education at Goucher College, in Maryland, receiving a BA in both psychology and art with a cum laude finish.  It was here that she was led to study abroad in Siena, Italy for a year, returning over and over again for it fed her soul just so.

She then journeyed to The Institute of Integrative Nutrition where she became certified as a Holistic Health Coach, lost 60 pounds of weight, learned to love her body and life, and opened her own practice Love Your Body Like A Goddess. 

She received her 200-hour RYT under the leadership of John Merideth of onlYoga, is a certified Eating Psychology Coach under The Institute for the Psychology of Eating, and is Georgia’s first Moon Mother under the training of Miranda Gray.  

She is also the co-founder of Earth Goddess Retreats which leads extraordinary, mystical retreats for the modern woman looking to ignite and reconnect with her divine spark in awe-inspiring foreign lands, and in the transformative coziness of sacred sisterhood. 

One more magical bit, this past year, Jessica’s love of raw cacao led her to the birthing of her raw chocolate line, Moon Cacao!

She has just completed her first year of studying Herbal Medicine at Botanologos in Clayton, Georgia to add some mystical bits to her apothecary of healing arts.
