about jess

equal parts thoreau enthusiast and led zeppelin fanatic, she's an enfp keen on indie movie theaters and oversize sweatshirts.

jess earned her bachelor of science in english and spanish from northwest missouri state university, taking her first job at nonprofit Iowa Center for Economic Success in clive, iowa. there, as the first to carry out the position of client education coordinator, she worked one-on-one with aspiring entrepreneurs to refine their goals and determine the steps to achieve them. She also facilitated workshops and designed materials for the organization.

from august 2016 to march 2017, jess contracted with local entrepreneur sheree clark, owner of Fork in the Road, to support her production of monthly That's Forkin' Amazing! magazine and a host of other projects.

all that talk of entrepreneurship must have sunk in; at the end of march 2017, jess left her job at The Iowa Center to start up ink & flourish and to pursue freelance writing*. she's writing for Broadsuite Media Group and Iowa Living Magazines.
