Jessica | Holistic Self-Care
I'm Jessica, your Holistic Self-Care Coach!
You will 90% of the time find me with a cup of tea or smoothie and some good food. I'm a lover of podcasts, heartfelt quotes/affirmations, and JESUS! Dance is my release (has been for over 30 years). I love to write, and family is EVERYTHING!
I have a Bachelor's in Radio, Television, and Film from the one and only Howard University (an Audio production concentration) and a Master's in Radio, Television, and Film from the University of North Texas (a Media Industry Studies concentration). It was in academia that I found my love for creatively communicating EMPATHY/AUTHENTICITY through words, visuals, and my voice.
I am a lady of Alpha Chapter, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and come from a long lineage of women family members and mentors who care about positively IMPACTING the lives of others so I know all too well the importance of filling our own cups (we can't pour from empty ones).
I am UNAPOLOGETICALLY an ADVOCATE for women making themselves a priority and practicing better SELF-CARE as they cater to their clients, family, and friends. I read somewhere that GOD'S CALLING for your life will be something that you struggle with, and as someone who struggled with making myself a priority, that couldn't be more true.
I didn't always take the time to do the things that HONORED me. I was often tired, anxiety filled, just trying to keep my head above water in my day to day responsibilities, and wanting, needing a break. I let my agitation/mood affect my business + personal life and brought it all home. I wasn't happy, wasn't fulfilled, and wasn't looking forward to doing what I loved because I was continuously putting everyone else before myself. I lost sight of what I wanted, did not like who I was becoming, and desperately needed change!
Not MAKING TIME for self-care is like NOT TAKING THE TIME TO BREATHE. That's why I've made it my life's mission to provide resources and opportunities for women business owners who want and need it most.
